The Mayo Clinic released a list of warning signs Friday showing whether children might have mental disorders -- a tool designed to ensure that parents and doctors catch mental illness early without alarming parents of healthy children. The 11 "action signs" are written in everyday English instead of medical jargon, with language created through interviews with 6,000 U.S. parents and children. "The child mental health field needed something like what cancer had done" with its seven warning signs of the disease, said Dr. Peter Jensen, a Mayo psychiatrist who led the creation of the list.
