The teenage years are rough for just about anyone. Even the most well-adjust teens with great familial support and good friends are now facing pressures that just didn’t exist two decades ago. Curriculum is harder than ever, the pressure to get into a good college, maintain a job, enjoy extracurricular activities, help out at home, and still find time for free time to spend with friends is an exhausting experience that begins to sap the mental strength out of even the most strong-willed individuals.
The problem is real, and there don’t appear to be any holistic changes coming to the pressures facing the youth of today. In fact, according to the National Institute of Health, teen mental health has reached the lowest levels in recorded history, and in 2013 alone an estimated 2.6-million teens and adolescents (age 12 to 17) had at least one major depressive episode in the last year. The actual figures could be much higher, as many of these cases tend to go undiagnosed and brushed off as a normal part of growing up, or hormonal imbalances that are known to affect teenagers.
Just like there are no two teenagers that are the same, there aren’t any cookie cutter ways to treat mental health problems facing our youth, most notably depression and anxiety.
Mental health professionals use a variety of treatments depending on the level of severity, as well as environmental factors, age, familial life, and the needs and desires of the teen and their family.
