About this Event

Adolescent health and criminal justice: How can they co-exist?

Catalysing Connections for Adolescent Health and Wellbeing aims to bring people together from different disciplines and sectors to discuss the interface between research and policy in adolescent health and wellbeing.

Children and adolescents who come into contact with the youth justice system are distinguished by complex health problems, typically set against a backdrop of trauma and entrenched disadvantage. Youth detention can compound mental health problems but may also provide opportunities to identify and initiate treatment for undiagnosed health problems. The available evidence suggests that long-term health outcomes for justice-involved young people are typically poor.

This Catalysing Connections event will involve a panel discussion with thought leaders in criminal justice, adolescent health, human rights law, youth services, and research.

Audience participation will be strongly encouraged.
