Improving mental health of children of low-income urban communities
This examines the effects on adolescent mental health of growing up in a low-income, urban neighborhood. Reviewing community statistics and scientific literature, it is important to consider how environmental stressors can contribute to the community's well-being. Ultimately, there are several facets to incorporate in our understanding, but evidence-based interventions for adolescent mental health and increasing mental health education can help promote well-being in urban settings.
