Abstract

In recent years, child and adolescent mental health issues have become a significant healthcare concern across the U.S. and in Nevada. As many as 1 in 5 children and adolescents experience a diagnosable mental health disorder each year; however, fewer than half of them receive mental health treatment. Nevada has one of the highest rates of major depression and suicide in the nation and ranks 36th in the nation on per capita mental health care state funding.
