Reviews
“Adolescent medicine is a relatively young branch of pediatrics. This multi-author, multi-country texts describe in 3 parts and 34 chapters the influence of the family, school and cultural socio-economic community on the mental health of adolescent youth. Of interest to all caring for these age groups.”
Pediatric Endocrinology Reviews (PER), September 2016

This title includes a number of Open Access chapters.



Mental health illnesses are often difficult to treat; they do not just affect the individual, but are rooted within communities and affect many other aspects of individuals’ social and physical lives as well. The current volume examines mental health specifically in adolescents, exploring how mental illnesses interface with communities, schools, families, and peers, as well as exploring the connotations for educators, social workers, medical professionals, and public policymakers. The various sections cover the following topics:
  • The interactions of adolescent mental health with the broader cultural and socioeconomic communities
  • The interactions of the educational community on adolescent mental health
  • The impact of peer and family relationships on adolescent mental health
  • Case studies of successful community interventions
This accessible reference volume offers a comprehensive guide to the multifaceted field of adolescent mental health. Edited by a physician at Boston Children’s Hospital, this book is an important resource for educators, parents, social workers, researchers, clinicians, public policymakers, and all who wish to understand the complex interactions involved in comprehending and treating mental health disease in young people.
