#1 Discharge Diagnosis in CA - Mental Health

Originally posted by Wendie Skala from Sacramento ACEs Connection Group - I will be looking at Yolo data and let you know what i find! (Gail Kennedy)

 

According to kidsdata.org, developed by Lucille Packard Hospital, the number one diagnosis for hospital discharges for children in CA is mental disease and disorders.  What is going on with our youth when 13.4% of all hospital discharges for children are classified as mental disease and disorder?  The next closest is asthma at 7.8%.  It is imperative that childhood adversity be brought to the forefront and resiliency become a priority for all who interact with children. - Wendie Skala, Kaiser South Sacramento
