Title:Underage Binge Drinking & Mental Health-Related Consequences

The purpose of this study is to describe the correlation between underage binge drinking and mental health-related consequences. I wondered how the age at which adolescents begin to drink, peer influences, and parental supervision affects their level of mental health issues.

I created a survey composed of quantitative and qualitative questions, and questions from three screening questionnaires for anxiety, depression, and suicide sensitivity. After conducting three in class data collections and several in person data collections, I found that adolescents that first binge drink when they are 12 to 17 years old, are not influenced by their peers, and are supervised by their parents have higher levels of anxiety, depression, and suicide sensitivity.
