This PBS story is based on a paper just published that documents the geographical distribution of child psychiatrists in the US. Not surprisingly, they are located in urban areas with high levels of education and income. Colleagues and I had previously documented how difficult it is to obtain appointments with child psychiatrists around the country and this new story adds depth to the total picture about the lack of availability of these services. You can find the PBS story here.
