Children’s mental health in cities
- Findings from the Urbanicity and Stress Project
Urban areas are crowded, people feel anonymous, and there are many strangers who may be threatening. Because of this, cities may be more stressful to live in than rural areas.
Brittany Evans will present her findings from a project exploring the influence of the increased social stress of living in a city on the biological stress system, and risks for mental health problems in youth.
