    Special Issue on Adolescent Mental and Behavioral Health

    Adolescence is a unique and formative time. Whilst most adolescents have good mental health, multiple physical, emotional and social changes, including exposure to poverty, abuse, or violence, can make adolescents vulnerable to mental health problems. Promoting psychological well-being and protecting adolescents from adverse experiences and risk factors which may impact their potential to thrive are not only critical for their well-being during adolescence, but also for their physical and mental health in adulthood.

    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles on Adolescent Mental and Behavioral Health. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Psychological, social, and cognitive development
    • Emotional and behavioral problems
    • Personality and behavioral effects
    • Relationship development
    • Self-identity and assessment
    • Mental and behavioral disorders
    • Intellectual disabilities
    • Behavioral therapy
    • Depression and anxiety management
    • Substance abuse and prevention
    • Parental involvement and family psychology
    • Gender issues
    • Risk factors

    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.

    Please kindly notice that the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title is supposed to be specified and the research field “Special Issue – Adolescent Mental and Behavioral Health should be chosen during your submission.
