We are facing an unprecedented crisis of mental illness in today’s children and teens. We desperately need more effective, functional medicine solutions.
Mental health and neurological conditions are reaching alarming levels in children and teens across the globe. The COVID-19 pandemic has only intensified mental health challenges among children and teens, especially when it comes to adolescent depression, anxiety, PTSD, grief and suicidal ideation. Research has found that rates of suicide in 2016 among teenagers were 48% higher than in 2000–a concerning pre-pandemic statistic alone. Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, rates of mental health problems in children and adolescents were concerning (Whitney 2019). To make matters worse, prescribing medications to children for mental health conditions is common, yet effectiveness is exceedingly poor. And unfortunately, for many mental health disorders, there are no approved medications for core symptoms.
