In brief: Yes
Alcohol, drug and nicotine abuse are number one.
Depression and suicide are important issues. Inappropriate sexual behavior with consequent std are a major concern. Motor vehicle accidents and deaths are also an important health hazard. Perhaps the most important health issue these days is teenage obesity.
