Research suggests that there are strong links between mental
health difficulties in young people and other adolescent health
issues that they experience as part of growing up.
Significant relationships have been demonstrated between mental
health difficulties and:
- self harm and suicide
- alcohol and other drug use
- sex and sexuality
- relationships with family, friends and intimate partners
- life stage transitions
