2. GROWING UP IN TODAY'S COMPLEX WORLD CAN BE TOUGH. There are many burdens that can weigh on a child's mind. For some, the weight of a mental health disorder makes the burden far heavier than it is for others. Mental illness in young children, pre-teens, and adolescents is widespread and often goes undetected, and ultimately untreated.
