In my personal opinion, mental health is important for everyone, no matter your race, sexual orientation, age, and more. But for this post, I want to talk about specifically mental health in teenagers. We all have a teenager in our life, whether its your own child, a niece or nephew, or perhaps you are a teacher or coach or therapist who knows plenty of them. In today’s society, the pressure that teenagers face every day is more prominent than ever. You have a group of young adults who one day have to raise their hand to ask to go to the bathroom suddenly making life-altering decisions the next week. So how can we understand mental health in our teenagers better?
Can you believe it? We finally made it to 2021! This is something worth celebrating for in my opinion.
New Year’s is right around the corner and we all like to think about the upcoming year and what our new goals will be. However, if there was one thing we learned from 2020, it is to not expect the year to go according to your plans and go with the flow. So what are some goals that we can have that are more long-term and easily accomplishable, even if things don’t go our way? This post will hopefully help you identify some new goals to consider and get you ready to ring in the new year!
