Study: Kids with Cerebral Palsy at Higher Risk for Mental Health Problems

In a new study published in Developmental Medicine & Child Neurology, results indicate that children with cerebral palsy are at greater risk for developing mental health issues. Researchers at the University of Michigan studied physical activity, sleep, and pain levels in over 100 children (ages 6-17) with cerebral palsy, and nearly 30,000 children without the disorder. The study concluded that the chances of having a mental health disorder such as anxiety, depression, or behavioral problems were higher in children with cerebral palsy. For example, the study notes that anxiety and behavioral problems were 3.8 times higher in children with cerebral palsy compared to children without the condition.
