Abstract


In the present scenario health is a broad topic for social science researcher The concept of health is changing with the passage of time. Now, health is viewed not only as the total absence of disease, but also it includes social and behavioral well-being. Violence has an array of possible expressions and consequences: someone could become disabled after being caught in cross-fire on their way to school or work; could be shot and sexually violated whilst fleeing a war zone; or could be tortured and humiliated at gunpoint with no shot actually fired. Human rights are not the exclusive preserve of any individual and group. They are neither owned by anyone nor can be doled out as a gift by one to another. They belong to all of us individually and collectively. They are universal and indivisible. This paper attempts to provide a review about the mental health status of youth, violence and their human rights because mental health and well-being is influenced by the social circumstances in which individuals find themselves and the environment in which they live.
