Abstract

The overall health of children and teenagers is dependent on their physical and psychological health. As pediatricians, it is important to enquire about the mental health of children and adolescents at the well-child visit. Screening for depression and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder is an important component of that visit. Understanding these disorders and the long-term effects on both the child and family as well as managing psychotherapeutic and pharmacological treatments are now becoming a critical part of pediatric care for children and adolescents.
