Why the depression cases & suicide rates in our teenagers are at an all time high ?
According to a new survey released by the American Psychology Association & Global Organization for Stress, Teens stress levels globally have exceeded the levels of stress faced by Adults.
The early teen years are marked by rapid changes — physical, cognitive and emotional. They also face, changing relationships with peers, physiological changes, access and adaption to social media, new demands at school, family tensions, and safety issues in their communities.
The ways in which teens cope with these stressors can have significant short and long-term consequences on their physical and emotional health. Difficulties in handling stress can lead to mental health problems, such as depression and anxiety disorders.
Empower Teens Program was created with an intention to provide a proactive solution to the growing epidemic of Teenage Stress & related mental health issues.
