Teen Mental Health

Teenage years can be a tumultuous time filled with transitions, challenges, and growth, so it’s no surprise that many teenagers experience mental health struggles.

Common challenges faced by teens include stress, anxiety, depression, and the pressures of social dynamics and peer relationships. These issues can manifest in different ways, affecting academic performance, relationships with family and friends, and overall well-being.

Talking About Mental Health

Although it may be tough or uncomfortable, having discussions about mental health and emotions creates a safe space for sharing and seeking help. Ask open-ended questions, actively listen without judgment, and validate your teen’s experiences and emotions. Only by breaking the silence and stigma surrounding mental health can we create a culture of understanding, acceptance, and support for all
