What to look for on Smart Talk Monday, April 25, 2016:

It's estimated that one in five children between the ages of 6 and 17 have some type of mental disorder.  Anxiety disorder is the most prevalent but behavioral disruption disorders like ADHD are also widespread.

It's also estimated that 79% of those kids do not receive any mental health care.

What can be done to ensure these young people get the treatment they need and what kind of treatment is that?

That's what the discussion focuses on during Monday's Smart Talk.

Dr. Ehsan Syed, who specilizes in child and adolescent psychiatry with the Pennsylvania Psychiatric Institute, is on the program.
