Gender differences in adolescents during psychosocial incidents
Posted on 24.11.2023
An Honours project used UPLOADS data and a structured survey to investigate whether there are gender differences in adolescents’ help-seeking behaviour and intentions for psychosocial problems in led outdoor activities. Learn more.
Psychosocial problems refer to emotional or psychological challenges causing difficulties in personal or social functioning, which can negatively impact mental health.
The findings suggest that led outdoor activity providers should consider:
- Creating environments and processes that encourage proactive help-seeking behaviours for all participants,
- Developing gender-specific strategies for detecting and responding to psychosocial incidents, and
- Targeted strategies to increase positive help-seeking behaviours for males.
