Understanding & Tackling The Gendered Drivers Of Poor Adolescent Mental Health

AuthorsChisina Kapungu & Suzanne Petroni

This paper attempts to provide a starting point for discussion about what is currently known about the connections among gender, adolescence and mental health, and to provide some initial considerations to help guide a research and program agenda moving forward. It begins with a broad discussion of gender and health during adolescence, then turns more specifically to what is known about gender and mental health in this important life phase. It then highlights some existing interventions, poses imperatives for future work, and draws conclusions for further consideration.
