More adolescents seek medical care for mental health issues
from Kaiser Health News
Less than a decade ago, the emergency department at Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego would see maybe one or two young psychiatric patients per day. Now, it’s not unusual for the emergency room to see 10 psychiatric patients in a day, and sometimes even 20. Emergency departments throughout California are reporting a sharp increase in adolescents and young adults seeking care for a mental health crisis.
