The welfare of Ohio's most vulnerable populations is being called into question, as Ohio and its counties try to mend their ailing budgets. Among groups believed most at risk - children struggling with mental illness. The Federation for Community Planning recently commissioned a survey on mental health care. Its preliminary results suggest that only 16% of Cuyahoga County's children in need are being served. There is growing concern that the health care system is failing to provide overall psychiatric facilities for people under eighteen. In an interview aired Monday, April 7th 2003, ideastream's April Baer recently spoke about the problem with Dr Robert Findling, director of child and adolescent psychiatry for University Hospitals Health System.
