Objective: To examine several subjective components of adolescents’ behaviour concerning mental illness prevention.

Method: Adolescents’ knowledge, their attitudes and subjective norms, as well as their thoughts about how they would concretely handle a psychological problem were measured. A self-administered questionnaire was completed by 438 male and female adolescents in grades 8 and 11.

Results: Gender and age differences were revealed: girls and older adolescents were more attuned to prevention. Further, the influence on young people of peers and parents was also apparent.

Conclusion: Adolescents perceive prevention concerning mental health as important. (Authors)
