Teens & Mental Health:

Understanding the challenges Idaho's youth are facing

Childhood Trauma
You can tell when a kid is in trouble. While you might not understand the reasons behind their responses, you know that aggression, withdrawal, self-harm and other destructive behaviors all point to a young person in pain.
Anxiety in Teens

A knot in the pit of the stomach that arrives before giving a speech in class or the sweaty palms when a class crush passes a note are normal reactions to stress and anxiety for teens. However, when the stomachaches become persistent and participating in social activities with friends and family becomes difficult, these may be red flags signaling a more serious issue with anxiety.

Depression in Teens

Having periods of sadness, sleepiness, or grumpiness is normal for teens. However, when these symptoms become pervasive and last for an extended period of time, it may be a sign of something more serious going on, such as teen depression
