Mental Health Transition from Adolescence to Adulthood
The transition from adolescence to adulthood involves many changes in mental health. The psychological and emotional developments are pivotal during puberty and can lead to major shifts in an adult’s personality. Sociological factors such as peer pressure, interpersonal relationships and family conflicts are also impactful during this age. Mental health disorders are majority identified during adolescence and early adulthood. Therefore, it is imperative to take good care of young ones.

It is a time of change and renegotiation of roles.
