Recently, a mom reached out about her teenager having severe anxiety. To the point of not being able to attend school.
Covid has done a number on all of us, but teens have been hit especially hard. They were told that it wasn't safe enough to go to school last year, but they're "frontline heroes" when they go to their jobs serving fast food and coffee!
My own kids have struggled this year. I haven't always known what to do to help them and I'm sure at some points I made it worse.
I often feel lost when dealing with these sensitive issues because I'm not a psychiatrist!
How are you helping your teens deal with depression and anxiety? Do you have any favourite resources?
