Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Developmental concepts are emphasized for major mental health issues in childhood, including ADHD and ASD, and it is accepted as a given fact that adverse childhood experiences can alter the developmental trajectory of individuals. Mental health issues have negative impacts on individual, families, and society, and also result in stigma. Much research is underway to uncover the interplay of biological substrates, psychological temperament, and environmental experiences.
This Special Issue aims to share and highlight the research findings on various issues experienced from childhood to adulthood. It is not limited to ADHD and ASD, but also includes media exposure, trauma, self-harm, etc.
