The major problem nowadays is the increasing level of stress, depression, and anxiety in teenagers. The mental health of teens is worsening day by day. There are a number of reasons for that.
Teenagers with a family history of mood or anxiety disorders may be at higher risk of developing them. Teenagers with a history of trauma — such as sexual abuse, violence, or involvement in an accident — are more likely to suffer from anxiety and depression.
Moreover a teenager’s social, school, and home environments can have an impact on their mental health. Difficulties such as abuse and neglect, divorce in the family, being bullied, poverty, learning disabilities, and struggling to fit in may all contribute to depression and anxiety. And it’s hard for them to cope up with these problems because neither their parents nor any of their family members pay attention to them.
They feel lonely day by day and that’s the main reason for the increasing number of teen suicide cases all over the country. Parents either blame the mobile phones or their friends for their attitude. But that’s actually not the case. Parents need to be educated about all these problems.
They need to understand that their children are suffering from such serious mental health issues. They should help their children cope up with it rather than pressuring them more and neglecting them. My message to all the teens and anyone suffering from those issues is that I know you’ve been going through rough days lately.
You’ve been stressing out and feel like you’re a failure in life but hang in there dear. You’re strong and you can deal with it all. Everything will be okay and things will turn out the way you want them to one day. Breathe and trust that you can survive this. And trust that as long as you don’t give up and keep pushing forward, no matter how hopeless things seem… You will make it.
