The present study aimed to examine whether caretakers of children with a food allergy experience distress and to determine their family's mental health-care needs and utilization. An anonymous survey was given to a sample of 454 caretakers during conferences hosted by the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network. Overall, 32 percent of caretakers reported above threshold levels of distress while 70 percent stated that mental health support would have been helpful, but only 23 percent sought it. Even when mental health support was desired and available, few received it. Routine discussion of mental health needs with families receiving medical care may help address barriers to utilization.
