Behavioral Health-Related ED Visit Rates for Children, Diagnosis & Gender
New York Finger Lakes Region (2014-2016)
Similar to the adult gender data, ED visit rates for anxiety/depression/stress are much higher for girls compared to boys. On the other hand, boys have significantly higher rates of visits due to ADHD/disruptive behaviors and developmental disorders. Also, it’s notable that the rate of visits related to suicide/self-harm are much higher for girls than boys. This contrasts with the adult data where the male and female rates are nearly the same.
