Abstract [en]

The association between adolescents' alcohol consumption and mental ill-health on an aggregate level is complex, including self-reported mental ill-health as well as suicide, deliberate self-harm and other psychiatric problems. The self-reported mental ill-health among 15-16-year-old girls in Sweden increased considerably from the middle of the 1980s to the middle of the 2000s, while the increase in alcohol consumption was substantially smaller. Among 15-16-year-old boys the alcohol consumption trend curve turned downwards following the turn of the millennium, while the mental ill-health trend levelled out after the end of the 1990s. The gender differences in alcohol consumption have, over time, evened out, while the differences in self-reported mental ill-health remain. The association between alcohol consumption and mental ill-health is, on an individual level, very strong. A high-risk group among adolescents, particularly among boys, are those who do not experience any life satisfaction and who also binge drink alcohol.
