Synopsis: Data from the 2001-2003 National Health Interview Survey indicate only a fraction of children with mental health problems receive services. Prevalence of mental health problems was higher among publicly insured children (9.1%) than uninsured (5.0%) and privately insured children (3.9%). Uninsured children with mental health problems had the least service use (42.2%) compared with publicly (63.6%) and privately (65.6%) insured children. While overall service use was similar by insurance type, publicly insured children more often received special education services than those with private insurance (30.3% vs. 18.8%). The sizable proportion of insured children not receiving services indicates other barriers to mental health care.
