Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This is a Special Issue on Mental Health and Psychiatric Disorders in Children and Adolescents; within, we aim to cover a variety of topics on preserving well-being, resilience and balance for the young in regard to environmental changes, behavioral expressions and health quality.  

Highlighting mental health challenges for children and adolescents comes as a priority in the post COVID-19 era; therefore, we encourage researchers to contribute to the international scientific dialogue. Numbers all over the globe show an increasing burden of mental health and psychiatric conditions concerning children, adolescent and their families. This also raises concerns about public health indicators, mental health in schools and general quality of life. 

This Special Issue will demonstrate a variety of topics on this specific scientific area, exploring the research results and best practices that may be used for future strategies in the control of any negative outcomes.

In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.

Dr. Artemis K. Tsitsika
Guest Editor
