Mental Health Problems Increasing Between Children

,

Mental illness is something that actually exists in our planet. It should not be taken lightly nor shall it be disregarded. Mental health can lead to many different mental diseases or even psychological disorders leading to suicide.

A new study conducted by a team of researchers from the Ontario Child Health Study (OCHS) have concluded that one out of five children re prone to developing a mental disorder. This is definitely a huge statistical number to cope with. These values were obtained in an earlier study conducted back in 1983, yet the value did not decrease.

The study shows that the reason behind these mental health problems is the lifestyle and most definitely schools and peer pressure. The recent study focused on learning habits of children from different ages and sexes. The study showed that almost 16% of children suffered from hyperactivity disorder while 10% suffered from disruptive behavior. Last but not least, 13% showed signs for anxiety or depression.

The lead author of the study, Michael Boyle commented on the results saying, “This is a very robust study we feel represents the situation in Canada. That means there are more than a million Canadian children and youth with a mental health problem. This needs to be addressed.”

The study was published with the full results in the journal of Canadian Journal of Psychiatry. Authors encourage people to take mental health more seriously and focus on finding ways to decrease the obtained numbers.
