Adolescence is a critical time for the development of youth mental health. This literature review draws from research literature on youth mental health, and data from services in Ireland and Northern Ireland. We identify some key messages about emerging trends in youth mental health in Ireland and Northern Ireland which are relevant to frontline practitioners working with children and young people, such as teachers, social workers and youth workers. We also highlight some findings from research on effective approaches, and implications for frontline practice.
