Mental health issues have risen greatly among adolescents and young adults worldwide. Mental health diseases consist about 16% of the world burden of illness in ages 10 to 19 years. 1 in 5 adolescents report some sort of depression and anxiety. More adolescents and young adults have also attempted suicide resulting to the third leading cause of death among adolescents. The adolescent stage is very important in the sense that it’s the stage where emotional and social habits are developed to maintain a healthy state of mind. These habits include good sleep, exercising and developing personal coping skills to use in school and at home. The increase rate of mental health issues can be related to the fact that in today’s world, adolescents spends more time on social media, electronic devices and engage in unhealthy habits such as drug use. These activities result in lack of outdoor activities and poor sleep. Some other contributing factors are lack of awareness, poor access to health care, stigma of having mental health issues preventingthem from seeking treatment and exposure to violent environment such as bullying and harsh parenting.
