Youth Well Being

Youth Well Being

Adolescence is a unique and formative stage in the development of human beings marking the transition from childhood to adulthood. Historically, this typically spans from 12 to 18 years of age. (Jaworska & Macqueen, 2015). This stage is a crucial period for developing and maintaining social and emotional habits important for mental wellbeing. These include adopting healthy sleep patterns; taking regular exercises; developing coping, problem-solving, and interpersonal skills; and learning to manage emotions. Supportive environments in the family, at school and in the wider community contribute significantly to the well-being of young people at this stage.

In recognition of the scale of psychosocial challenges and especially among the youth, eMA has highlighted wellness among the youth as a critical area of focus alongside the delivery of its mentorship programmes.
