According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 1 in 6 children ages 2-8 have a mental, behavioral, or developmental disorder. The most diagnosed mental health disorders among children ages 3-17 include:

  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) – 6 million children
  • Anxiety – 5.8 million children
  • Behavioral problems – 5.5 million children
  • Depression – 2.7 million children
  1. Living with one of these disorders is difficult enough, but many children are diagnosed with more
  2. than one mental health disorder. About 73.8% of children with depression also experienced anxiety, and 47.2% experienced behavioral issues.

The concern surrounding mental health issues increases as children reach adolescence during age 10-19. Adolescence marks a major transformation in a child’s life as they navigate new social, physical, and emotional health changes. Adolescents may experience increased anxiety around puberty, social acceptance, and finding independence.

This feature has helped us strengthen relationships with other organizations in the community because providers can collaborate more closely to reduce readmissions and help get patients to the right care settings at the right time”

It is clear limited access to treatment can deeply impact a child’s behavioral health for the rest of their lives. How can we do our part in providing technology to help ensure children in foster care get the critical mental health support they need to live long, happy lives?

One of the first steps in improving these distressing numbers is to bridge the gap between availability of treatment and access to treatment for children in need. At Bamboo Health, we are dedicated to working with state governments to deliver technological innovation to address the behavioral health issues of all children, especially those in foster care.

Through OpenBeds, our comprehensive treatment and referral network, states can foster collaboration between patients, providers, referral centers, and other stakeholders to improve patient outcomes. This solution offers the ability for healthcare professionals to access decision support tools and make digital referrals to appropriate behavioral health treatment facilities for children in need of care.
