What if homework and grades are causing anxiety?
How do you help someone struggling with depression without offending them or upsetting them?
How should I deal with sudden thoughts of sadness and depression that I may have out of nowhere?
We asked teens to submit their most pressing questions about mental health and wellness.
Then we asked our counselors to provide answers.
These answers aren’t comprehensive … They are a start. If you or someone you know needs counseling please call Christian Family Solutions Counseling Care & Services at 800-438-1772. If you are experiencing a health emergency of any kind, please dial 911. If you are having suicidal thoughts or know someone who is, call or text the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 988.
