Psychosocial well-being, including emotional resilience and support from adults and peers, is central to adolescents’ healthy transitions to adulthood. GAGE findings highlight the vulnerability of young people in Jordan and suggest there is considerable scope for government and humanitarian programming to do more to foster the good mental health that underpins young people’s confidence and self-reliance and the social connections that foster appreciation for diversity and a sense of belonging.
