Therapy for Teens and Adolescents.
Mental health counseling is a great tool for helping teens work through whatever is troubling them. However, it can be difficult to know if a teen’s behavior is normal, or if they need to see a therapist.
Here are the signs that your child should see a counselor:
Constantly feeling sad, hopeless, worried, fearful, anxious, or angry
Having difficulty concentrating or making decisions
Feeling restless; unable to settle down or focus
Talking about death or expressing suicidal thoughts
Talking about harming themselves or others
Engaging in self-harm behaviors (cutting, hitting, etc.)
Abusing alcohol or drugs
Earning poor grades in school or experiencing a sudden drop in performance
Abandoning activities/hobbies they once enjoyed
Changing their sleeping/eating habits
Withdrawing from family and friends
