The National Institute for Mental Health reports that one in five children and adolescents have a mental disorder. Many of these mental health problems interfere with the lives of the individuals they effect as well as the individual's daily living and normal development. Mental disorders do not only effect the individual but also the family and friends of the individual. Some mental health problems are severe and may effect the individual for a lifetime while other mental health problems are more mild and may only effect them for a short period of time.
