We are seeking teenagers to participate in a study of how teenagers think and feel about the changes in the height and size of their body as they get older. Some teens feel happy about the changes in their body, for example getting taller and larger, but some teens may not. Participation in the study involves the teenager answering some questions about how satisfied they feel with their body, their wellbeing and their relationships with friends and family. We are also interested in the effects of hormones on the way people think and feel at adolescence so will also ask participants to provide saliva samples for analysis of testosterone and oestrogen. No physical examination is involved in participation.
