Abstract:
Background and Objectives: Adolescence is a time when a person's biological, psychological, and social aspects change and they go through a lot of mental ups and downs. A lot of different psychological problems happen to teenagers at some point in their growth. A lot of these issues are short-term and are often forgotten. The goal of this study is to find out how common mental disorders are among secondary school kids from tribal groups.
Methods: At Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Mahavir Institute of Medical Sciences, Vikarabad, Telangana, India, 120 female students participated in a descriptive study. The study included the months of May 2015 to April 2016. The hostel guardian has signed a clearance form. The municipal authorities granted the permit. The ethics committee gave the institution the green light. Sign up for a lifetime the semi-structured proforma was utilized to collect sociodemographic data. Included in the details were the following: name, age, school, religion, race, and family type. In addition to marital status, the survey inquired about the parents' level of education and occupation.
Results: A study found that mental health problems are more common in rural places than in cities. It's possible that this is because the tribal charity hostel is in a remote area. Twenty-four teenage girls in this study were found to have a mental illness. Most of these girls were 14.3 years old. The chi-square number that was found was 12.751, and the p value that went with it was 0.0005. This result is statistically significant. Around eighteen of the girls were between the ages of 13 and 15. From these results, it looks like psychosocial disorders are more common in kids and adults between the ages of 13 and 15. The study came to the same conclusions, which suggests that stress may be one reason why the number of people with psychiatric illnesses in this age group is rising.
Conclusion: The research we did showed that 16% of the teenage girls living in tribal welfare homes had mental health problems. The girls were mostly in the eighth grade and ranged in age from 13 to.
