1. Why TRAILS?Antwoord
TRAILS contributes to the understanding of the determinants of adolescents' knowledge about mental (ill-)health and social development during adolescence and young adulthood, as well as the mechanisms underlying the associations between determinants and these outcomes. This knowledge is necessary for developing effective interventions and prevention.
2. What does 'TRAILS' stand for?Antwoord
TRacking Adolescents' Individual Lives Survey
3. Why did TRAILS start collecting data when the participants were about 11 years old?Antwoord
The age of 11 marks the beginning of adolescence, an important period with regard to the development of mental health problems. Whereas some adolescents overcome the problems they suffered from as a child, others get more problems. That is why we wanted to chart this period really well.
4. Why is TRAILS still collecting data?Antwoord
The TRAILS participants have grown into adults by now. By asking how they are doing at this point in time, we can investigate the long-term consequences of the developments during adolescence.
5. What is the purpose of TRAILS-Next?Antwoord
TRAILS-Next focuses on the offspring of the TRAILS participants. In this project, we hope to learn more about how parents’ history and behavior influence their children’s development.
