Sport and Mental Health - Young People

Last Updated: 11/23/2016

Sport and organised exercise should be used to promote better mental health for young people (aged 14-25 years) is the conclusion of a new report published by StreetGames and the Association for Young People’s Health. Young people are most commonly affected by anxiety and depression, eating disorders, conduct disorder, substance use disorder, ADHD and autism. However, this new review shows that the benefits of sport for mental health include preventing problems from arising and promoting positive youth development to treat mental health problems once they exist. The new literature review examines the connection between young people’s mental health and sport participation focusing on the prevention and treatment of mental health problems. Its aim was to find out which components of sport seem to be linked to good outcomes, and what is known about the potential mechanisms.
