This research explored adolescents’ lifestyle behaviours and depressive symptoms. Adolescents who were inactive and ate unhealthy diets reported more depressive symptoms than their healthier peers. Community stakeholders identified that lifestyle behaviours were complex and driven by various socio-cultural factors. These factors can inform new strategies to improve adolescents’ mental health.
