Analysis of contextual mental health factors in ado­lescent girls and women of fertile age



The aim of the article is to analyze the level and frequency of the psycho­pathology prevalence (stress-related disorders) in adolescent girls and women of fertile age and to identify the relationship with contextual factors that ad­versely affect health.

The research found that the most important contextual factors affecting psychological health and the prevalence of psychopathologies in adolescent girls and women of fertile age are family environment, the lack of supportive intrafamily relationships that provide emotional support and activate the mental potential of a woman, adverse life events, and in adolescent girls it is also a long-term stress which is linked to academic activities. These factors pose a significant threat to mental health, can cause difficulties in adaptation, can become a trigger mechanism for psychopathologies, and also affect the dis­orders, exacerbating the female problems.
