It is apparent that rates of diagnosis of childhood mental illness show some variation from country to country, leading to concerns that those countries with high rates of diagnosed childhood mental illness are “medicalizing” normal conditions, with associated concerns that emotional problems are not being solved in productive ways, and that there is over-reliance on medication. Often the public debate is conducted in sensational and simplistic terms. The flip side of the overmedication debate is the worry that in many countries, even including the US, childhood mental illness goes underdiagnosed and undertreated.
