Abstract

Albania is a country of transition facing many challenges including the development and support of health and social services that will enhance the well-being of its population. Albania has one of the youngest populations in Europe and the young people face difficulties with lack of recognition and care of mental disorders, as well as violent and antisocial behaviours that may reflect violent environmental conditions and nutritional deficiencies leading to developmental problems. In this paper the behaviour of some Albanian adolescents was examined; it is probable that they are more at risk from psychological stress. For many of them the need to make a new start at a point in life at which all resources should be committed to distancing the world of childhood and starting to create a position, means a process of inevitable recession.
