Abstract

Adolescence is a period of intensive physical and emotional development with long-term impacts on mental and emotional well-being. This Briefing Paper presents the findings from the 2014 Scottish Health Behaviour in School-aged Children (HBSC) survey on key measures of subjective well-being: life satisfaction, happiness, quality of life, psychological complaints, and perceived stress. Many of these are included in the Children and Young People’s Mental Health Indicator set established following a review of the evidence in Scotland in 2012.
