Read the article in full.

This study points out many of the benefits for young people joining the Scouting movement. Better mental health later in life is more of a consequence than an aim but, certainly, the emphasis on soft skills – teamwork, self-reliance and the like – develops balanced adults and that will stand them in good stead in many ways.
