This Knowledge synthesis examines reference points underpinning actions to enhance mental health, life situations encountered during the passage to adulthood and the resources that can have a positive effect on the mental health, and the relevant spheres of action to promote mental health in young adults.
The results of this synthesis offer various actors working with young adults and their partners a common frame in order to analyzing actions to be taken to foster their mental health. They allow to identify the life situations associated with the passage to adulthood that can affect the mental health of youth. They provide courses of action for including the mental health of young adults in public health interventions currently implemented in Québec or for implementing new interventions.
