School experience

Is there any relation between changes in adolescent mental health over time and changes in the structure, processes and experiences of schooling over the same period?

This review will explore the links between the school experiences of young people aged 10–14 and their mental health outcomes. A particular concern will be to establish whether significant variations in the levels of reported mental health outcomes can be related to concomitant changes in the structure, processes and experiences of schooling over the same period?
