Pages: 194-199
Abstract
The teen years are a time of tremendous change, defined by fast physical, mental, and emotional maturation. Teenagers face a wide range of psychological challenges as they make the transition from childhood to adulthood, many of which have long-lasting effects on their health and future prospects. This cross-sectional research was conducted to learn more about the prevalence of adolescent mental health issues. In all, 180 high schoolers participated in the research (90 males and 90 females). Out of a total of 90 students, 23% of the males and 27% of the girls were found to have some kind of psychological or social issue. There was no significant difference between boys' and girls' scores on the 'Psychosocial issue Inventory' scale's four domains of behavior, emotional, and educational difficulties, while girls' scores were considerably higher on social problems.
