Description

Among the more common mental disorders that can be diagnosed in childhood are attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anxiety, depression, and behavior disorders. CDC uses surveys, like the National Survey of Children’s Health, to understand which children have diagnosed mental disorders and whether they received treatment. This web page reports on rates of mental disorders by age and gender, access to treatment, and lists data sources for mental health disorders and related conditions.
