Adolescence is the transition period from childhood to adulthood, and can present specific health challenges and developmental needs. Important changes take place, including physical–hormonal (e.g., puberty, musculoskeletal, etc.), neurodevelopmental (e.g., emotional responses, sleep regulation, cognitive capacities, etc.), psychological, emotional and relational ones. These special characteristics can often be related to the emergence of mental health problems and high-risk behaviors.
The purpose of this Special Issue is to help clinicians and researchers explore issues related to the developmental and psychosocial health of children, adolescents and young adults. We invite manuscripts dealing with most common mental-health-related issues observed in this specific age group, such as eating disorders, overweight and obesity, substance use and abuse, internet addiction and internet high-risk behaviors, cyberbullying, sexual health topics, gender dysphoria, mood disorders, anxiety disorders, obsessive–compulsive disorders, at-risk mental states (ARMSs), ultra-high risk (UHR) and clinical high at-risk mental states (CHARMSs) for psychosis, alongside the development of novel instruments for the assessment of adolescent psychopathology and related topics. Original research papers, brief reports, reviews and meta-analyses are all welcome, and we encourage the submission of interdisciplinary works and multicountry collaborative research.
We look forward to receiving your contributions and creating a Special Issue with the aim of providing readers with novel data and information concerning adolescent mental health.
