On Demand Wednesday Lecture Series: Mental Health Promotion & Disease Prevention – It’s About Time

This presentation was originally reviewed on December 15, 2021, and broadcast live online on December 18, 2019, from 12:oo PM – 1:00 PM ET. 

The views and opinions expressed by this presenter in this lecture are their own, and do not represent the views of Sheppard Pratt.

Over the past decade, our field has observed rapidly rising rates of mental illness among children and adolescents. The numbers are sobering. Nearly 50% of teens 13 – 18 years-of-age meet DSM criteria for at least one disorder, 27.6% for a “severe disorder.” Adverse childhood experiences affect over 60% of children and predispose these individuals to not only academic and behavioral problems throughout their youth, but also future physical disability, such as obesity, hypertension, and diabetes, as adults. By 14-years-of-age, accidents, suicide, and homicide assert themselves as the leading causes of death among our youth, accounting for over 85% of the mortality among teens and young adults, and holding fast to that ranking until the age of 35. Most addictive behavior starts in adolescence, accounting for the three greatest causes of preventable death – smoking, obesity, and alcohol abuse – which take the lives of approximately one million adults in the U.S. annually. So, what is the obstacle to delivering adequate mental healthcare to children, adolescents, and their families? Plain and simple, we have a dearth of people trained in child and adolescent mental health, including psychiatrists, psychologists, and all manner of allied mental health workers. Yet even when care is available, inequity is commonplace, and the vast majority of the mental healthcare that our children receive is not evidence-based. Given that we will never be able to treat adequately and equitably all of the mentally ill children and adolescents with our current mental health workforce and treatment delivery system, we must begin to employ a public health approach to mental illness. While prevention efforts will not thwart all mental illness, they will almost certainly temper the expression of these illnesses. This presentation will focus on effective means of primary and secondary mental health promotion and disease prevention.

Target Audience

This activity is intended for physicians, nurses, psychologists, social workers, counselors and other mental health professionals. 

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, attendees will be able to:

1.Identify the prevalence of mental illness among children and adolescents.
2.Describe why, by and large, we have not engaged in preventing mental illness in the past.
3.Select seven effective strategies for preventing mental illness among children and adolescents.
