Children, Teenagers need professional help and support, now more than ever.
With the world changing rapidly around us, many people are experiencing more and more pressure to keep up. Everyone seems to be constantly on the go, trying to get more done in less time, and have increasing expectations thrust upon them, which can lead to a whole host of issues – especially for children and adolescents.
Problems that adolescents face.
Did you know that the human brain doesn’t reach maturity until up to age 25? Well, now you do!
The flood of hormones and chemicals, on top of the pressures that go along with needing to ‘fit in’ and make something of themselves, can cause issues for children and adolescents that those who are older may not fully understand.
A recent stufy by the YMCA shows that a staggering 62% of British teenagers reported that they felt heightened expectations surrounding their appearance, and that this was due to social media.
With more and more of the lives of young people around social media, and the pressure that they can feel from school, entering the workplace and life in general, there are an increasing number who are suffering in silence.
Some common problems that they encounter (and that we can help with) include:
Break up of parents
Social media pressures
Juggling school and work
Conflict in relationships
Transition from school life to work life
Selecting a career
Drug or alcohol misuse
Common indicators that it's time to talk to someone
Adolescents who are struggling to deal with the problems they're facing can display a range of indicators that everything’s not quite okay, including:
Aggressive or violent behaviour
Inability to cope with everyday life, such as work or school
Poor personal hygiene
Changes in eating habits
Depression and anxiety
Substance or alcohol misuse
The above obviously isn’t an exhaustive list. There are many more indicators that a young adult may be struggling.
