Introduction:

The WHO indicates that in 2016 approximately 1.1 million adolescents between the ages of 10 and 19 died in the world, mostly due to preventable causes.

Objective:

The present study analyzed the problems, risk situations and traumatic experiences experienced by teens in elementary school and high school during the last year.

Methodology:

The design was non-experimental, quantitative, descriptive, retrospective. 661 adolescents from 56 schools in Alto Paraná participated through a probabilistic sampling stratified by three-stage conglomerate. With the prior authorization of the parents, the self-administered questionnaire Plan of Action for Development and Health of Adolescents and Young People in the Americas of the Pan American Health Organization adapted for the purposes of the research was used. Results: The results reflected problematic situations at home such as arguments with their mother / father (44.6%), bad behavior and disobedience (35.1%). At an academic level, low grades in school (43.1%). In a transversal way, character-temperament problems (25.4%) and alcohol consumption (21.0%). Regarding the emotional experiences, 33.1% felt sad or anger all the time; 17.4% got involved in fights.

Conclusion:

Risk situations such as suicide attempt (16.6%) were evidenced; and traumatic experiences such as sexual abuse (6.5%), beatings and mistreatment (16.0%). Only 10.9% attended the consultation for emotional problems.
