Persian Youth Cohort is the first nationwide attempt to identify the burden on psychologic and behavioral diseases in Iran. In a collaboration, Iranian National Center for Addiction Studies (INCAS), Tehran and Fasa University of Medical Sciences are currently running the study in three different locations with vigilant surveillance and monitoring of data gathering. We hope to be able to identify the causes and risk factors of unsafe behavior and the reportedly increasing prevalence of psychiatric disorders.
