Overwhelmed?  Confused? Depressed? Suicidal?

Teen years are often confusing. Sometimes it may   feel like your life has been turned upside down. Concerns about school, friends, parents, relationships, body changes, and plans for                                 your future are common challenges you may face. 

Most young people go through times when they feel down, confused moody, and unhappy. During these times it is important to talk to someone about what is bothering you, especially if these feelings last for a long time and things get worse as time goes on.
