Dr. Gary Blau, Chief of the Child, Adolescent and Family Branch of the Center for Mental Health Services, joined Dr. Greene this month to discuss his work in the field of mental health. Among other issues, Dr. Blau discusses the alarmingly high rate of children in need of mental health services and the much lower rate of care available. He recommends not only expanding the number of health care providers, but also expanding the thinking of who could be helpful in treating these issues. Along these lines, he introduces the idea of mental health first-aid as a critical first step in providing appropriate services to children with mental health needs. In addition, Dr. Blau discusses the importance of a strength-based treatment model and the feasibility of family-driven, youth-guided service provision.
There is much discussion about the role that mental health issues have played in schools and communities that have been impacted by recent college campus shootings and other school shootings.

Adam Lanza, the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooter, is not known to have been professionally treated for mental illness. In that he was not alone. Across the country, many youth who need help the most are not getting it.
Almost two-thirds of teens with a lifetime mental disorder fail to get professional help, according to the National Institute of Mental Health. Of all those teens with mental health issues, those with severe mental disorders get treatment even less often, with half reporting they have never been seen or treated by a professional therapist.
Recent budget cuts, a shortage of mental health therapists, and inadequate community health services are among the reasons for the lack of treatment, mental health professionals say. Many health insurance plans don't cover mental health therapy. Teens and their parents are often reluctant to acknowledge the need for professional help and may not know where to turn.
