Mental health and wellbeing among adolescents in Scotland: profile and trends

This report explores trends in mental health and wellbeing among adolescents in Scotland and the factors which best predict higher and lower mental health and wellbeing. The data shows that in the last three years there has been a marked change in mental health and wellbeing among pupils. While some aspects have improved (conduct problems, pro-social behaviour) or remained largely the same over time (hyperactivity, mental wellbeing), others have worsened (emotional problems and peer problems). One of the starkest changes is the extent to which mental health and wellbeing has changed among 15 year old girls, particularly in terms of their emotional wellbeing. In 2010, 28 per cent of 15 year olds girls had a borderline or abnormal emotional problems score. This increased to 41 per cent in 2013. Physical wellbeing was linked to mental health and wellbeing – those who had a limiting illness or disability reported poorer mental health and wellbeing than those that did not – particularly in relation to emotional problems. A number of activities appeared to have a protective effect against poor mental health and wellbeing (although causal links are likely to be complex). Expecting to go to university, belonging to a group or club and seeing friends, doing a hobby, reading books or playing a sport at least weekly were associated with better mental health and wellbeing. For girls, in particular, playing sport on a weekly basis was strongly related to lower levels of emotional and behavioural problems. (Edited publisher abstract)

This Statistics Release presents for the first time, information in regard to Mental Health Officers (MHOs) in Scotland as official statistics. The survey data used in this report has been collected since annually since 2005, at Local Authority level. The survey has been developed each year with new questions being added when a need for further information has been identified  There was a substantial under count of staffing in 2005, due to managers working as MHOs not being included, this report will present data from the 2006 survey onwards. The aim of the survey is to collect information about the number of qualified MHOs who are practising within Scotland on the 31 March for a given year. Practising is defined as using legislation directly in relation to working with clients, or potentially using legislation directly in relation to clients e.g. serving on rotas, during the previous 12 months.
