Mental health across the life span: Longitudinal epidemiological data on developmental pathways of internalizing mental health problems and peer victimization among children and adolescents in Germany
Childhood and adolescence are important transitional periods for healthy aging. Emotional mental health problems (i.e. depression) are frequent in children and adolescents and associated with numerous personal and social determinants. Peer victimization is a developmentally substantial contributor to social and psychological maladjustment. The interdisciplinary project aims to explore the developmental course of mental health problems and peer victimization for children and adolescents.
