Pediheart Podcast #148: Mental Health Problems Affecting Children With Congenital Heart Disease

This week we delve into the world of mental health and review a new large study from the group at Texas Children's on prevalence of anxiety, depression and ADHD amongst the pediatric CHD patient group. How common are these disorders in the young CHD patient and how does this compare to the general pediatric population? What role does minority or insurance status have on diagnosis or treatment of these disorders? Third year cardiology fellow Dr. Vincent J. Gonzalez shares insights from his important work this week. doi: 10.1542/peds.2020-1693
