Adolescent Wellness: Current Perspectives and Future Opportunities in Research, Policy, and Practice
Sustainable Development Goals: 3
- SDG 3 - Good Health and Well-Being
This Robert Wood Johnson Foundation report draws from the views and ideas of 25 adolescent development experts about the most critical issues in adolescent wellness, gaps in research, translation of research into policy and practice, and opportunities for learning and action.
Researchers, policymakers, practitioners, parents, teachers, and funders stand at a crossroads in determining our nation’s approach to adolescence. The traditional view holds that the adolescent years comprise a difficult phase to be endured and survived. But a newer path considers adolescence to be an important time to nurture, guide, and support our youth to live the healthiest lives possible.
