An overview of Adolescent mental health interventions and prevention.
Adolescent mental health issues are a serious issue that can be treated or prevented. They are also rather frequent. Adolescent patients of obstetricians and gynaecologists are far more likely to present with one or more mental health issues. Some of these illnesses may make it difficult for a patient to comprehend or express her health issues and properly follow treatment recommendations. An ovulatory cycles and different menstrual abnormalities can be brought on by conditions that disrupt the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis or the therapies used to treat them. Teenagers with psychiatric problems may be using psychopharmacological medications that might lead to galactorrhea and menstrual disruption. Adolescents with mental illnesses frequently act out or use drugs, which raises their chance of engaging in risky sexual behaviour that could lead to pregnancy or STDs.Author(s): Rahman Rezvi*
