Childhood mental health problems extend into adulthood

New longitudinal research from Duke University, reported by CBCnews/Health, suggests that mental health concerns experienced in childhood, whether diagnosed or not, tended to result in a different from expected trajectory towards adult development for those impacted.  The authors noted the importance of  identifying and addressing the needs of “sub-threshold” children, those not “diagnosable”, as they also experienced a higher than expected number of adult adjustment problems.  Clearly this is a call for early mental health promotion, which is the battle cry of school psychologists, and yet they aren’t even mentioned in the article!
