Some 100,000 children in Italy have 'complex disorders'

Psychiatrists say care needs 'outstanding'

(ANSA) - Milan, September 17 - Around 100,000 children in Italy have "complex neuropsychiatric disorders with outstanding needs", experts announced on Wednesday at a Milan convention on child psychiatry. Experts revealed approximately 100,000 children were "in a situation of particular complexity and their care needs are still too often outstanding" and 3.6 million children had neuropsychiatric disorders overall.

Antonella Constantine, President of the Italian Society of Childhood Neuropsychiatry (SINPIA), said that children and families "run the risk of being confused by the different responses that they receive depending on the service to which they are addressed or workers they rely". Specialists emphasized that patient's health needs require coordinated and skilled answers and investigations in order to proceed forward with appropriate care. The convention was held at the Mario Negri Institute in Milan.
