Our kids have never had it so tough. It is no longer just about wearing the right clothing and brands or being part of the cool group. They are exposed to situations and stressors we never had to face from potential gun violence at school to around the clock social media pressures that constantly remind our kids what friendships and events they are missing out on.

If you are noticing two or more following symptoms it may be time to find help your child or teen.

Behaviors to be aware of:

  • Lack of motivation to spend time doing things they used to do
  • Excessive use of electronics and distraction
  • Isolating and keeping to themselves
  • Harmful behaviors to cope (e.g. drug use, eating less or more, cutting, thoughts of suicide)
  • Angry outbursts and/or inability to explain what is going on inside of them
