Diagnosing Mental Illness in Children & Teens

Mental Illness in Children and Teens

Mental disorders are often hard to diagnose in children and teenagers, especially when the signs are not as severe. Many mental disorders are not treated.

According to a study done by the National Institute of Mental Health, NIMH, roughly 20 percent of U.S. youth will be affected by a mental illness during their lifetime. Mental disorders range in severity and may affect the individual only slightly or may be so extreme it can lead to devastating consequences.

    I had lived severe depressive disorders, anxiousness, panic disorder, and insomnia for a long long time. I’ve tried using Cymbalta, Paxil, and Effexor. Most recently, my doctor suggested Prozac, Ambien, Abilify, and Xanax. This mix appears to be effective, although I still have severe insomnia anymore. I’m hoping he could recommend something combined with the Ambien or improve the dosage; often, the symptoms and signs have rapidly minimized for me.
