      Absolutely. Some adolescents will be up until 3am most nights, some will take part in risky behaviours such as smoking and drinking. Some will be athletes with perfect sleep and nutrition plans!

      When it comes to mental health, something like 20% of adolescents over 16 have symptoms of anxiety or depression.
