Are you or is your teen suffering from Depression, Anxiety, or Grief?
Teens face a growing number of stressors including: Bullying High expectations for school, college, and sports Difficulty in relationships Struggles with new and heightened emotions Fears about the future
Additionally, anxiety and depression don't have age limits. Teens experience these conditions just as adults do. From social anxiety or severe depression and suicidal thoughts, teens face mental health concerns and don't always have the knowledge or experience to identify what it is they are suffering from and that there is help for it.
Resolve can help.
Resolve specializes in working with adolescents suffering from anxiety in order to better tolerate stress. This stress can come from multiple reasons, such as bullying, perfectionism, concerns about the future, social anxiety, conflict at home, difficult relationships, and generalized anxiety. Stress and anxiety can build up to a point of feeling paralyzed. We can become so stressed that we fear any decision we make and are incapable of moving forward and enjoying life. When treating anxiety, your counselor will work with you on relaxation techniques and explore the underlying causes of anxiety in order to reduce the worrisome thoughts.
Resolve also specializes in working with teens experiencing depression and grief. Depression isn't just something you feel when things are going bad, many people experience major depression despite an objectively good life. Don't just accept that your or your teen's mood is "just hormones." It could be severe depression which can spiral into very dark places.
You are not alone.
Anxiety and Depression aren't just adult issues and they rarely just go away. Many teens suffer from these conditions and are able to work through them to find happiness again.
There is hope.
Learning how to cope with and combat the depression and anxiety early in life will have long lasting benefits to you or your teen. These benefits can include improved mood, relationships, ability to set and attain goals, improved sleep, and overall better functioning in life.
