Experiences of traumatic events during childhood are shown to have long-term adverse consequences in adolescence. There are many ins and outs for childhood trauma such as sexual abuse, emotional abuse, mistreatment, and aggression by their primary caregivers.  Individuals’ experiences in adolescence are strongly impacted by childhood trauma in several dimensions, such as psychosocial well-being, mental health, cognitive function, and physical health. This review study will explore the significant impact childhood trauma has on the adolescent stage. Also, this study will scrutinize the significance of early intervention and assistance to reduce long-term impacts and offer insights into the widespread and persistent consequences of childhood trauma on individuals as they navigate adulthood. The aim of the present review is 1) highlight the types of childhood adversity, such as domestic violence, abuse, and neglect, etc. 2) the consequences of childhood adversity on the mental health outcomes of adolescents 3) inform the evidence-based strategies for preventing and addressing the consequences of childhood trauma.
