Child & Adolescent Psychiatry

High-dose antipsychotic use in children and young adults without psychosis is associated with an increased risk of unexpected death, according to a study published online in JAMA Psychiatry.


Roughly one in 40 U.S. children has been diagnosed with autism, and a national survey of parents suggests these kids have a harder time getting mental health services than youth with other emotional or behavioral issues.

People who survive car crashes, falls, and other major traumas that require hospitalization are at increased risk of developing mental health conditions and dying by suicide, according to a study published online.

NEW YORK—A study from Colorado suggests that many young children are being exposed secondhand to marijuana smoke in the home and more research is needed to understand the potential harms, the study teams says.

More children seem to be presenting to U.S. emergency departments with mental-health problems, and minorities may account for a disproportionate share, according to new research.

Cognitive behavioral humanistic and interpersonal training (CATCH-IT) may be better than health education as a primary care intervention to reduce risk in adolescents with subsyndromal depression, researchers say.
