ESPIN JAIME, José Carlos  and  BELLOSO ROPERO, Juan José. A descriptive study of the child and adolescent new cases attended at a mental health service during one year. Rev. Asoc. Esp. Neuropsiq. [online]. 2009, vol.29, n.2, pp.329-354. ISSN 2340-2733.

We report a descriptive study of the children and adolescents attended for the first time at the Mental Health Services of Aranjuez (Area 11, Community of Madrid) during the year 2004. A total of 314 new patients were reviewed. The aim of this study is double: on one hand, to describe the socio-demographic characteristics of these new patients and, on the other, to study the distribution of the diagnostic categories with respect to sex and age variables. In order to collect the data, we used the computerised program of the Mental Health Services of the Community of Madrid (Accumulated Registry of Cases).
