Teens Face Daily Stress

Many teens are under an incredible amount of stress on a daily basis. From school work to extracurricular activities, social media pressure to peer relationships, there are so many factors that can put strain on a teen’s mental health. It’s so important that these issues are addressed before they become bigger problems down the line.

The Most Common Teen Mental Health Conditions

The most commonly diagnosed teen mental health conditions include:

  • Anxiety disorders – When your teen is constantly on edge and worried about even minor issues, they may be struggling with an anxiety disorder.
  • Depression – Symptoms of depression can range from a lack of interest in once-enjoyed activities to feelings of hopelessness and sadness.
  • ADHD – Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is often characterized by hyperactivity, impulsivity, and distraction.
  • Bipolar disorder – Teens with bipolar disorder will experience extreme highs or euphoria (mania) followed by severe lows.
  • Grief and loss – Grief can affect teens of all ages, and it is important to recognize the signs of depression associated with grief.
  • Substance use disorders – Teens who are misusing drugs or alcohol may be at risk for mental health conditions.
  • PTSD and other trauma-related disorders – Trauma can be caused by experiences such as abuse, violence, or a natural disaster.

If your teen is struggling with any of these conditions or similar ones, it is important to seek professional help from a qualified healthcare provider like Beyond Healthcare.

How Your Teen Can Focus on Mental Health in the New Year

Making a mental health resolution for your teen can be an effective way to start off the New Year on the right foot. Here are some tips for setting achievable goals:

  • Start small and simple
  • Focus on one goal at a time
  • Make sure goals are measurable and realistic
  • Set reminders and check-ins throughout the year
  • Practice self-care
  • Find support systems when needed

The Benefits of Coping with Mental Health Issues

Mental health resolutions don’t just benefit your teen in the short term; they can also have lasting effects that benefit their overall well-being in terms of improved emotional regulation and better coping skills as they get older. Improved self-esteem and confidence levels can also result from setting achievable goals related to their mental health resolutions.
