The teenage years are a bright and beautiful period in our lives. However, the teenage years are also the time that is most susceptible to adaptation problems, which include physical, mental and social changes. Global research shows that during adolescence, physical and mental health care are often neglected. Adolescence is the period where teenagers need correct information and understanding from the people around them. It is important to give priority to the development of their growth to prevent physical and mental health problems, and to solve other problems that may occur, in a timely manner. At Samitivej Children’s Hospital, we have healthcare professionals in the field of adolescent health. It is important to promote the growth from the childhood years to adulthood, as this will lead to a happy life.
