Abstract

Recent reports by UNICEF and WHO have� provided a bleak, but improving world ranking of United Kingdom (UK) youth with respect to risk behaviours and subjective well-being. Adolescence is potentially a prime period for interventions aimed to improve population health because of the continuities in subjective well-being and health-related behaviours throughout the lifecourse and adolescent subjective well-being and health-related behaviours predict adult health outcomes. With the UK?s low standing in youth subjective wellbeing, we need to better understand the relationship between health-related behaviours and youth subjective well-being.
