About The Study: The findings of this study suggest that pediatric mental health emergency department visits and revisits are increasing. Markers of disease severity and health care access were associated with revisits. Directing hospital and community interventions toward identified high-risk patients is needed to help mitigate recurrent mental health emergency department use and improve mental health care delivery.
