As a teen, taking care of yourself means a lot of things. Avoiding drugs and alcohol and making responsible sexual health decisions are just some of the ways you need to take care of you. It’s important to take the time to develop and nurture your mind, body, and spirit too.
With all the changes happening to your body (oh hey, puberty) and transitioning through high school, it’s normal to feel stressed. Finding healthy outlets to relieve this stress will help you take a step back and enjoy what’s most important.
Our Mental Health section covers some of the common struggles teens face such as body image, depression, anxiety, or suicidal thoughts. This section offers advice on how to recognize these struggles in yourself and others and what to do if you find that someone you know struggles with them too.
