Adolescent Mental Health matters, as well as Adults. #LetsTalk
Adolescence and the early years of adulthood are a time of life when many changes occur, for example changing schools, leaving home, and starting university or a new job. Moreover, spending extended hours online and being exposed to humanitarian emergencies lead to mental distress and illness. These changes may cause them to experience stressful situations that may cause depression and other mental health conditions. Keep in mind that everyone is prone to mental health conditions, Adolescents as well as Adults.
In support of the World Mental Health Day, ‘Young People and Mental Health in a Changing World.’ Awareness Campaign by the World Health Organization (WHO), the American Center for Psychiatry and Neurology is conducting the following activities.
