This was evident in the Ninth Seminar Lundbeck "Plunged in sadness at any age" held in Ibiza. According to Dr. Celso Arango (Head of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Hospital General Universitario Gregorio Maranon de Madrid and scientific director of CIBERSAM) "50% of children with major depression and psychotic symptoms end up having a bipolar disorder in adulthood."

Furthermore, the presence of depressive episodes in young (19-30 years) is associated with long-term severe and disabling episodes, increased risk of psychiatric comorbidity (substance abuse, anxiety disorders and dysthymia), greater psychosocial maladjustment in multiple domains, a personality profile characterized by pessimism, low self-esteem, poor coping strategies and greater number of presence of environmental stressors.

In the case of children and young people, the largest single risk factor is family history of depression cases, followed by traumatic events in childhood such as abuse, neglect or bad times, as well as certain temperaments. Environment plays a key role in developing depression. In the words of Dr. Arango "the environment is the water to irrigate the seed to grow the depression."

70% of psychiatric disorders begin before 18 years, with mental illness the leading cause of disability in young adults. The specialist found that 5% of health spending in Spain is for issues related to mental health, when the European average is 13%.

One of the criticisms leveled at the Central Administration Ibiza was the non existence in Spain of the specialty of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. Only Spain and Albania, in Europe, do not. The Minister of Health, Leire Pajin, has promised the group that can be approved before the end of this year.

Celso Arango In his presentation he spoke of suicide risk in children. 17% of adolescents think about suicide over a year. 12% of girls and 5% of children have made some attempts suicide.

In Spain the figures are worrying, because it is the fourth leading cause of death in the age bracket of between 15/44 years and the second leading cause of death in adolescence. I called on cases of bullying or bullyng: "More and more cases come to their queries, so we asked for zero tolerance in schools."
