Children today face increasing challenges that can act as triggers for rising psychiatric symptoms. These range from reduced sleep, pressured school, disconnected family life, escalating obesity, depressed mothers, intrusive media and poor nutrition. In addition, there is a rapidly escalating use of psychiatric medication. Dr. Scott Shannon examines many of the assumptions built into our current system of pediatric and adolescent mental health, and offers a new vision for the future. (#17974)
