It's tough to be a Teenager sometimes!

I know as adults we sometimes say "What I wouldn't give to be a kid again!" The truth of the matter is that, as adults, we have lived through heartbreaks/divorces, death of friends and loved ones, losses of jobs, failure at school or work, debt management, coping with feelings of sadness, etc. Sometimes these trials and tribulations can really have a lasting emotional effect on our teenagers.

Over the years, we learn "coping skills" to help us manage the barrage of feelings that come along with the highs and lows of life. For some, these skills develop on their own, for others of us, we need help in developing these skills, so that we can have a happy and fulfilling life.

Should you or your student need help developing coping skills or need to talk to someone about how to process different events in life, PLEASE do not be afraid to reach out for help. The list of Community Resources below will provide you with names, addresses, and phone numbers for a variety of Clinical Counselors in the local area.
