Essay from the year 2018 in the subject Medicine - Public Health, grade: 2, Egerton University, language: English, abstract: Ordinarily, the adolescence stage of human development among teenagers is usually masked by an array of psychological issues especially with regard to personal responsibility and character formation. In most cases, adolescents are observed to develop anti-social behaviors such as juvenile delinquency, suicide and substance abuse. In addition, some adolescents become rebellious to authority, and they often y express identity issues.
