Overview: For this milestone, due in Module Two, you will submit your introduction. Provide a brief overview of your selected public health issue (Childhood Depression). You should identify your chosen public health issue and summarize it. Your summary should include a description of the issue, worldwide and national prevalence, and any other important statistics or facts about the issue. (For example, is it something that affects a certain sex, ethnicity, or age group more than others?) You should also discuss the significance of your issue to the field of public health. Why is it important? Why should we devote time and resources to addressing it? This section should be supported by examples and evidence that will strengthen your argument. Lastly, you should discuss the history of your selected issue and describe how it has evolved over time.
Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed:
A. Identify and summarize your selected public health issue.
B. Discuss your issue’s significance to public health. In other words, is it significant because it affects a large percentage of the population, does it affect a largely underserved/disadvantaged population, etc.? Be sure to provide examples and evidence to support your discussion.
C. Discuss how your selected issue has evolved to its current state.
