Synopsis: Children rely on their parentsÕ efforts to access the health care system for them. Almost 1 in 3 children have no health insurance coverage for all or part of the year, with a disproportionate number of these children living in rural areas. The health disparities that exist between rural and urban locales are under-examined. The research has been adult-focused; little research has been devoted to child-centered rural health issues. This study is a review of research since 2000 on rural mental health care disparities of children and adolescents. This review illustrates the need for research to improve in this area.
