What Can Be Done About the Children's Mental Health Crisis?

Is there a disparity in treatment between the rich and poor?

A. Poorer kids are less likely to get treated, because there are fewer services in their communities and there's more of a stigma attached to mental health problems. That said, Medicaid does cover treatment for children, so the very poor are covered. And the very rich can afford to pay for treatment. It's the working class and the middle class that are left out.
