Response to Changes in psychiatry's 'bible' altered children's care

By 2005, an eminent group of mental-health researchers asserted, in an article published in the Archives of General Psychiatry, that at least one-half of adult Americans would at some point in their lives meet the criteria for some recognized mental disorder in the newly drafted version of the diagnostic manual.

Their survey also had found that most mental illness grew out of conditions that began before adulthood. Ronald C. Kessler, the Harvard researcher that had led the group, said the findings dictated that "interventions aimed at prevention or early treatment need to focus on relatively mild cases among youth."
