Does The Lack Of Resources For Adolescents With Mental Health Living In Low Income Areas Affect The Severity Of The Conditions In Comparison To Adolescents With Mental Health Outlets?
Mental health problems can negatively impact a person's ability to function in social situations, the ability to combat problems, and ultimately affect their sleep patterns. Therefore, a study about how the lack of resources for adolescents with mental health living in low income areas compares to adolescents with mental health outlets is required to take action research to address this inequality. The research method for this project is to interview an employee from the Ravenswood Health clinic to get data about accessibility for adolescents living in low-income areas, and determine next steps to help ameliorate the situation.
