"I'm Not 'Mental'"––Mental Health Needs of Teenaged Youth
Public health has come to appreciate that adolescence is both a source of risk for many mental health issues and a complication for treatment. The presentations in this roundtable offer new research into the complex relationships that contribute to the incidence of suicide, substance abuse and eating disorders, violent behavior, and victimization among youth and young adults, and act as barriers to care.
