Doctors highlight lingering effects of childhood trauma, mental illness 
WISCCAP's Break the Cycle

Children are caught in a cycle of limited access to care, delayed treatment, and worsening illness. Our goal as child & adolescent psychiatrists is to BREAK THE CYCLE by collaborating with mental health professionals and parent advocates, investing in research, helping children get treatment, increasing awareness, and ending the needless sense of isolation. This summer, Dr. Andrés Martin will cycle from Washington State to Washington, DC, leading a ride to raise awareness of the challenges faced by children and adolescents with mental illness.

Andrés Martin, MD, MPH is a child and adolescent psychiatrist, prominent member of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (AACAP), & Editor-in-Chief, Journal of American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. Dr. Martin is leading this cross-country bike ride (route).
