Adolescent Mental Health


Tori, Jadyn, Kennedy, Jess

Our project’s target population is adolescents, ages 12 to 19, which is a stage marked by psychological maturation and rapid physical changes. Adolescents are deemed "ideal for initiating healthy behaviours and benefiting from health promotion interventions." Given this fact and the escalating rates of depression and anxiety in society (Hidaka, 2012), this age group is particularly opportune for targeted education on mental health challenges.

Anna Krasnoshapka:

Thank you so much for bringing attantion to adolescents' mental health with your great project! I enjoyed reading your information a lot.
