Teens

Adolescence is a tough time. Even if it were possible, you couldn't pay most adults to go back and redo their time as a teenager! It's the time of life where we're starting to look around at our friends and family and question who we are and how we fit.

 

Society is also hitting a fascinating stage of understanding across the Health Sciences and we're learning so much about how to best take care of ourselves and those we love. It means that what has "always been done" can sometimes look different from what we now know is helpful. Our teens are right in the thick of these changes and are becoming familiar with terms that adults may not have been exposed to at the same age and stage. 

Teens are also at risk of battling mental health concerns, which complicate life and make it really hard to know where to turn. It's so important to find our safe places and to connect in with people who are calm, kind and reliable.
