We all have a role to play.
It’s important for adults to be aware of mental health challenges that can affect adolescents, including common conditions and symptoms. By promoting mental wellness in young people, the adults in their lives help provide them with building blocks for a healthier, more fulfilling life.
We can all play a role in keeping young people healthy and safe—including parents, caregivers, and family members, as well as teachers, faith leaders, mental health providers, and others who interact with adolescents. Whether at home, school, or in a community setting, we all can help.
Together, let’s save lives.
Resources For Young people
It’s helpful to know how to recognize common signs and symptoms of mental health conditions. This section for teens and young adults provides resources and information to help you understand your own mental health and know how to find help for yourself or a friend.
Resources For Parents
Parents and caregivers play vital roles in adolescent mental wellness and suicide prevention. They are in a prime position to provide support for an adolescent with a mental health condition or experiencing a suicidal crisis, encourage them to seek treatment, and help keep them safe. This section for parents provides mental health resources and information to guide and educate those who live with teens.
Resources For Educators
Teachers, counselors, coaches, and other school personnel who interact with students on a daily basis play an important role in keeping them safe. They’re often the first to notice signs of mental health issues in students. This section for educators offers information and resources to help guide them with useful information and resources.
Adolescence is a time of change, when young people may experience stress from many sources, including relationships with friends and family members or problems at school. As children grow into teenagers, it becomes more challenging for adults to know what they’re thinking and feeling. This section for suicide prevention will help guide you with useful information and resources to understand what can put adolescents at risk for suicide.
