To navigate through the teens can be challenging as there is constant pressure to do well in school, be liked by everyone else, social media pressure, look good, and so much more. This pressure can escalate with time, changing a teens’ thought process and the way they regulate emotions. The stress and changed behavioral pattern may lead to the development of mental disorders, affecting the teen’s performance at school, friendships, eating and sleeping habits, and interest in day-to-day activities.
If left untreated, mental health problems in teens can worsen leading to debilitating consequences. Therefore, it is imperative to seek treatment for mental disorders at a certified mental health center, committed to looking after this age-group under a compassionate and skilled care system. The environment should be conducive to the mental and overall well-being of the teen. The treatment modalities devised should be able to empower the teen to cope with the challenges that life has to offer, while contributing to the society.
Some teens have a higher risk factor of developing a mental health disorder than others. These risk factors are:

As a parent, teacher or a guardian, it is important to be watchful of these symptoms. If the symptoms worsen over time, one must arrange for professional help.
