Develop an intervention (your capstone project), as a solution to the patient, family, or population problem you've defined. Submit the proposed intervention to the faculty for review and approval. This solution needs to be implemented (shared) with your patient, family, or group. You are not to share your intervention with your patient, family, or group or move on to Assessment 5 before your faculty reviews/approves the solution you submit in Assessment 4. In a separate written deliverable, write a 5-7 page analysis of your intervention.
Please submit both your solution/intervention and the 5-7 page analysis to complete Assessment 4.

Mental Health in Adolescence: Solution
Mental Health in Adolescence: Solution
Mental health challenges experienced during adolescence must be addressed to maintain
a holistic approach to adolescents’ health. Adolescence is an important stage in development
because of the increased independence the individual gains as well as complex social and
emotional changes anticipated due to biological changes. This transitional period often presents a
challenge for many adolescents whose mental wellness may be affected adversely. This project
has focused on identifying mental illness in adolescents and advancing education to the target
group to enhance mental wellbeing and positive health outcomes. The proposed solution includes
both student and other stakeholder education including parents and teachers at their schools. The
educational brochure created is targeted towards students as the primary audience with the aim of
increasing awareness, conversations about mental wellness, and help-seeking behavior to reduce
adverse health outcomes.
Leadership and Change Management
The role of leadership and change management in designing and implementing healthcare
interventions is paramount. One of the approaches of proper leadership and change management
is stakeholder engagement at all levels. Even if a change effort seems to work initially, it will fail
in the long-term if core stakeholders are not engaged (Boaz et al., 2018). In this case, the main
stakeholders identified were students (target audience), their teachers, and parents. When
creating the solution, the change management strategy was implemented by creating audiencespecific solutions to ensure stakeholder engagement. Students were targeted with brochures and
group discussions relevant to their issues while parents and teachers were targeted with the main
topic being on how to support adolescents and discuss mental health issues. The proposed
solutions, therefore, were tailored to stakeholders to maximize buy-in and support for the
Additionally, leadership in healthcare requires an evidence-based approach to justify
interventions and clinical and management decisions. In this project, all information and
recommendations for young people on mental health are based on current and credible evidence.
Evidence-based practice (EBP) validates the leader’s decisions and increases the chances of
success in implementing new processes or improvements (Bianchi et al., 2018). In line with this
evidence on leadership and change management, the educational product designed for students
contains information that is evidence-based and hence credible. The leadership and change
management strategies of stakeholder engagement and EBP were the main approaches affecting
the solution proposal.
Moreover, nursing ethics was considered in developing the mental health solution. One of
the core ethical principles is autonomy which is the right to make personal decisions without the
interference of other people. In line with this principle, the target audience are given the freedom
to make decisions on whether to seek mental health assistance. This approach allows high school
students to retain their autonomy regarding seeking mental health care. When implementing the
intervention, high school students will provide informed consent in seeking further mental health
