Car accidents can be particularly traumatic for children. Research has demonstrated that anywhere between 15% and 25% of children who are in car accidents develop symptoms of depression, although some don’t manifest for months.
However, a study published by the The Journal of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Mental Health indicated that children who received some form of intervention within the first week or so after a serious car accident were less likely to develop depressive symptoms and behavioral issues within the next 6 months.
However, psychological care can come at a high financial cost, particularly for children who may need more care than adult counterparts.
