The keywords search and title search and advanced search were applied in order to determine the articles and other forms of surveys on the general topic of adolescents’ psychological health. The articles were filtered for the TOP-30 concerning chronological principle and their actuality, novelty, citation level and deepness of the researchable aspect.

They concentrate on the principal factors that force pathological psychical behaviour among adolescents.
