‘Socioeconomic and sex inequalities in parent-reported adolescent mental ill-health: time trends in four British birth cohorts’.
Open Access paper from the JCPP
Background – Studies using symptom-based screeners have suggested that mental ill-health has increased in adolescents in recent decades, however, few studies have tested the equivalence of their instruments, which is critical for inferring changes in prevalence. In addition, little research has explored whether socioeconomic position (SEP) and sex inequalities in adolescent mental health have changed over time.
