According to a recent study conducted in Canada, one in five children and youth suffer from a mental disorder, but less than one third have had contact with a mental health care provider. Although those overall results echo a similar study from 1983, the new study found a much larger proportion of children and youth with a disorder had contact with other health providers and in other settings, most often through schools.The new study found that the patterns of prevalence among different sexes and age groups have changed. Hyperactivity disorder in boys four to 11 years old jumped dramatically from nine to 16 percent, but there has been a substantial drop in disruptive behaviour among males 12 to 16 years old from 10 to 3 per cent. There has been a steep increase in anxiety and depression among both male and female youth from 9 to 13 per cent. In 30 years, the prevalence of any disorder increased in communities with a population of 1,000 to 100,000, rather than large urban areas, and there is strong evidence that poor children are more likely to have a disorder if their neighbourhood is one where violence is more common.

I wish I were happier about the historic moment of Chicago s mayoral race and election. I wish I could celebrate instead of being so contrarian. But for me and other Chicago activists, the power of representation is limited; racial and queer aesthetics can only go so far. Last week, Chicago elected its first ever Black Lesbian mayor, Lori Lightfoot, as a successor to Chicago s current mayor Rahm Emanuel. Emanuel s departure as mayor is welcomed by many Chicagoans as his actions during his term drastically underdeveloped Chicago s most vulnerable neighborhoods. During his time as mayor, Emanuel closed six of Chicago s 12 mental health clinics (mostly located in the South and West side communities), closed nearly 50 schools (also mostly in South and West side neighborhoods), attempted to cover up the murder of Laquan McDonald and refused measures to hold the Chicago Police Department accountable, among many other things.
