Important New Book on Adolescent Mental Health Published!
Monday, March 31, 2008  4:54:00 AM

by Deborah Clark Ebel

The Forgotten Future: Adolescents in Crisis, a startling new look into life inside adolescent psychiatric hospitals, has just been published.

With an estimated twenty percent of America’s children under the age of 18 afflicted with emotional and behavioral disorders, hundreds of thousands of these young people are confined each year to psychiatric hospitals, residential treatment centers, therapeutic foster homes, boot camps, and behavioral academies. While in some cases children may very appropriately be referred to and treated within inpatient psychiatric facilities, one must question the benefit of many of these out-of-home placements. What kind of treatment are our children receiving? Is there an intensive therapeutic experience that effectively meets their needs and addresses their problems? What is hospitalization like and how do they spend their time? Do most return home “better”? You may be shocked and surprised to learn what really goes on behind the locked doors of an adolescent psychiatric unit.

The Forgotten Future: Adolescents in Crisis provides an unprecedented eye-opening look into the lives of teens whose families have entrusted them to the care of psychiatric hospitals. You may come to question whether or not our hospitalized children receive the best mental health treatment available, and at the same time, you will be encouraged to learn of the dedication and hard work of individuals who work with our children despite the many challenges of their chosen profession. You will come away convinced that our nation must rally to provide a mental health care system that truly works, and you will agree that our children deserve a chance to reach their goals and live to their greatest potential. Their futures must not be forgotten.

The Forgotten Future: Adolescents in Crisis, ISBN 9781432719357, can be ordered at, Barnes &, or your favorite online bookseller. The Forgotten Future: Adolescents in Crisis can also be special-ordered at your neighborhood book store.
