This session describes the prevalence of mental disorders and comorbidities and research challenges associated with estimating prevalence.
Session Objectives: Describe analysis of Behavioral Risk Factor Surviellance System (BRFSS) data related to mental illness stigma. Discuss how patient-centered communication and specific knowledge of risk factors impeding disclosure could allow health care providers to adopt strategies to increase disclosure of behavioral health problems in the context of a structured screening process. Examine the adverse effects of chronic diseases on psychiatric disorders using data from a nationally representative sample of the U.S. general population. Describe sociodemographic disparities in the emotional and behavioral difficulties of children.
