Being a teenager is hard stuff. It’s a time of physical, emotional, hormonal, intellectual, and social changes. No wonder it’s stressful. Also, add the mounting pressures technology and social media place on teens, and it’s clear why so many struggle with being emotionally and mentally healthy.
Sadness, hopelessness: What happened to my happy kid? No one is always happy, but has sadness become your teen’s de facto daily emotion? Have you noticed your teen breaking out into tears? Do insignificant matters seem huge? Are they telling you he/she doesn’t understand why they’re so unhappy?
Irritability, anger, or hostility: Some of this is expected with a teenager. This can be expected from anyone. However, if these feelings start becoming more frequent and intense or are unusual for your teen, it may indicate a bigger problem.
Poor school performance: Falling grades and difficulty concentrating can be a big sign that something is wrong. It can be hard to focus on schoolwork if your teen is depressed or anxious.
In Pennsylvania, minors aged 14 and up are considered adults when accessing mental health treatment. That means that your teen can decide if they want their parent involved in their treatment. Depending on your teen’s wishes, the therapist may share very little information with parents about their teen’s treatment. This law certainly has its pros and cons. But, be assured that if your teen is at risk of harming themselves or someone else, the therapist will inform the parent and take the appropriate action to keep your adolescent safe.
