Significant numbers of teenagers globally are reported to have health and mental health problems. Parenting factors have been shown to be related to adolescent health and mental health problems as well as other social determinants. Teen Triple P is described as an example of an intervention developed as an upward extension of the Triple P—Positive Parenting Program for parents of children from 12 to 16 years of age. Challenges that need to be addressed to increase parental access to trained practitioners are discussed, including the tendency among workers in the adolescent mental health field to be oriented to working directly with the teenager and the identification and training of a workforce that has the capacity and opportunity to work with parents of teenagers.
