This paper examines the nature, severity, and prevalence of mental, behavioral, and emotional disorders among children, as well as the types of services that are available to help them. It looks at how these children are served by the education, health care, and child welfare systems, and it identifies the gaps in these systems of care. Finally, the paper also examines the extent to which Medicaid, SCHIP, and private health insurance finance mental health care services for children.
