Identity Development :

Identity development is a complex process, involving the exploration and definition of one’s self-concept, values, beliefs, and relationships with others. The degree to which individuals have developed a coherent and stable sense of identity can have a significant impact on their mental health and well-being. Research indicates that individuals who experience identity diffusion (i.e., a lack of clarity and direction in their sense of self) are more likely to experience mental health problems, such as depression, anxiety, and substance abuse. Additionally, individuals who have experienced trauma or discrimination may have more difficulty developing a coherent sense of identity, which can increase their risk for mental health problems.
