There are not enough child therapists to keep up with the demand for mental health services. 

Aug 18 2022

There are not enough child therapists to keep up with the demand for mental health services. The need for mental health services for kids has increased significantly and the amount of child and teen providers are simply not keeping up; parents and children are having to deal with long waiting lists dating 6 months out. JAMA Pediatrics data shows that “between 2016 and 2020, there were significant increases in children’s diagnosed anxiety and depression” and their report last summer shows “’youth mental health difficulties’ during the pandemic have ‘likely doubled.’” The American Psychological Association is warning that out of over 100,000 clinical psychologists in the U.S., only 4,000 are child/adolescent clinicians, and school psychologists are in even shorter supply. YPulse’s Mental Health report data shows the majority (75%) of Gen Z and Millennials agree that children should have mindfulness / meditation training in school.
