Addictive behaviours were defined as those behaviours that can become compulsive and continue despite causing health and social harms (e.g., neglecting other areas of life). Particular attention was given to how policies addressing such behaviours in young people are developed (assessed through a policy mapping exercise) and to what extent they have been shown to be effective (assessed through a systematic review of reviews).
These web pages summarise the findings of the review of reviews of effectiveness of the policy approaches identified in the policy mapping in producing positive outcomes in young people.
