Why is it important to study mental health in youth?

In the light of today’s Youth Mental Health Day we discuss why it is important to study how and why mental health problems emerge during adolescents at Wellcome Centre for Human Neuroimaging website. Three-quarters of mental health disorders arise before mid-20s. How is the emergence of mental health problems related to the rapid brain development during adolescents?  This is what our group and many others are trying to understand. Please go and visit Wellcome Centre for Human Neuroimaging website for the full discussion on the importance of studying mental health in development and how our team has contributed to better understand the relationship between brain development and psychiatric disorders.
