Many of our seminars and public events this year will continue as in person or as hybrid (online and in person) events. Please check our website listings and Twitter feed @STICERD_LSE for updates.

Unless otherwise specified, in-person seminars are open to the public.

Those unable to join the seminars in-person are welcome to participate via zoom if the event is hybrid.

About this event

In this talk, some recent evidence related to the extent of inequalities in adolescent mental health by various different socio-demographic indicators (sex/gender, ethnicity, sexuality, socioeconomic) will be presented, first in the UK and then more widely across various countries. Findings from some ongoing research will be then shared where drivers of these observed inequalities are sought to be identified. Findings related to inequalities in later life outcomes by mental health will also be presented, how these might be changing across generations and the implications of these for efforts to reduce adverse lifelong consequences of early life mental health difficulties.
