In today’s modern and fast-paced world, everyday life is enough to create enough pressure to cause mental stress. If adults have a hard time dealing with the rapidity of change in our world, how can children be expected to handle it. If parents are not handling it well, then they will be unable to teach stress management, or resilience to children.
This does not even include mental health disorders that tend to be hereditary, passing from one generation to the next, even skipping a generation.
The Examiner online page has a list of the Most Common Mental Health Issues Affecting Children.
Marina Lumsden talks about a Fox News article and elaborates on the topic. You can find this list below and should you want a short description of each mental health disorder affecting children, then just click the link.

Here is the link to the Fox News release gathered from its traditional sources…
The CDC News Room (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) has issued a ‘comprehensive report’ on the state of the Most Common Mental Health Issues Affecting Children in the US.
The “Report is an important step to better understand childhood mental disorders and help children reach their full potential in life.”
“Children’s mental disorders affect boys and girls of all ages, ethnic/racial backgrounds, and regions of the United States. Previous studies estimate up to 1 in 5 children have mental disorder and a new CDC MMWR Supplement finds that millions of American children live with depression, anxiety, ADHD, autism spectrum disorders, Tourette syndrome or a host of other mental health issues.”
