Prevalence of psychological distress in 18-23 year olds 1996 and 2012-13
This project aims to examine the prevalence of psychological distress and mental health conditions in 18-23 year old women to see if there have been changes in behaviour between 1996 and 2012-13. The measures of mental health that will be examined are diagnosed mental health conditions (e.g., depression, anxiety), mental health symptoms, stress, psychological distress using the Kessler Psychological Distress Scale (K-10), suicidal ideation and self-harm.
