May 16, 2013

In an effort to present a comprehensive picture of child mental health conditions in the United States, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), for the first time, released a comprehensive report today on “Mental Health Surveillance Among Children” in the U.S. from 2005-2011. The new report summarizes findings from numerous research studies and data sources used to monitor the occurrence of various child mental health conditions, including autism spectrum disorder, in the community.
