What are Experts on Camera?

Expert on Camera:

Mental health problems in teenagers have been on the rise in recent years. One in five children ages 3 to 17 in the U.S. were experiencing a mental, emotional, developmental, or behavioral disorder even before the pandemic created new barriers to social activities and upended schooling. 

On Tuesday, August 9, SciLine interviewed:

Dr. Nick Allen is a professor of clinical psychology and director of the Center for Digital Mental Health at the University of Oregon. He discussed topics including: 

  • Which teenagers are most at risk; 
  • Why these issues were becoming more common even before the pandemic, and how the pandemic has worsened many of these trends; and 
  • Possible solutions to these problems, even amid a lack of accessible care in many places.
