Overview

It is estimated that in the United States, 14-26 per cent of children under the age of 18 suffer from some type of behavioural, emotional or developmental problem. However, less than a third of these children receive any mental health care. This volume presents recent developments in policy, service and evaluation, and explores how more of these children can be reached and helped.
