The pressure to study, perform academically, manage your time well and stay focused can be a lot to handle. Many teens feel stressed and anxious about school.
Being a teenager means becoming more independent, making your own choices and figuring out how you want to be in the world. This can be hard on you, parents and other family members. Pre-existing mental health or social issues in family dynamics can make this even tougher.
From friend drama to new romantic experiences, it's not always obvious how to handle certain situations, and if you feel like you don't have anyone to talk to, it can be pretty lonely.
Health and wellness are important throughout our lives, and it takes time and practice to develop skills that work for you and your goals. Some teens struggle with body image and eating, some with drugs and alcohol, and some with self-harm or other kinds of personal issues.
Hi, I'm Victoria. Sharing your experience with a non-judgmental and supportive person can be so useful. Trying new resources, considering new perspectives, and reflecting on yourself can bring about positive change.
