‘Trends in adolescent emotional problems in Wales between 2013 and 2019: the contribution of peer relationships’
Open Access paper from the JCPP
Epidemiological evidence shows a substantial increase in adolescent emotional problems in many countries, but reasons for this increase remain poorly understood. We tested change in emotional problems in a national sample of young people in Wales in 2013, 2017 and 2019 using identical symptom screens, and examined whether trends were accounted for by changes in youth friendship quality and bullying.
