Early Intervention in Youth Mental Health

Special Issue of Early Intervention in Psychiatry: Early Intervention in Youth Mental Health : Papers from the 1st International Youth Mental Health Conference [Free access until end of April 2011]

While material well-being and physical health have dramatically improved, the mental health of young people in transition from childhood to adulthood has been steadily declining, and this from a low base. One of our failures so far is not to have appreciated that the timing and pattern of mental ill-health impacts so strongly on young people who, on the threshold of adult life, have the most to lose.
