March 2nd is World Teen Mental Health Day
By Dr. Jon Sullivan, Ph.D., HS-BCP
The World Health Organization (WHO) defines mental health as, “a state of well-being in which the individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and can make contributions to his or her community.”
Suicide is the second leading cause of death of individuals between the ages of 15 and 24. Some warning signs from a teenager can be talk of dying, recent loss, low self-esteem, change in behavior, change in eating, change in sleeping, or a change in personality. One change does not necessarily mean your teen is at risk. The best thing you can do is keep the lines of communication open and be involved in their lives.
