Teens and Mental Health

It seems like mental health is in the news more and more often. Yesterday…today…tomorrow. What is mental health? What are the warning signs and how is mental illness treated?

I have come across a few sites about teen mental health that I found informative and worthy of sharing.

If you or some you love is suffering, please contact your doctor, a friend or school counselor-anyone who can help. The world can be a harsh place, but it can also be a compassionate place. It is my experience that people are far more willing to genuinely help than we give them credit for.

Do not suffer alone.
