Teens experience problems day in and day out, on the internet and in real life. With the internet, there are daily risks and ample opportunities for cyberbullying, self-image issues, and access to potentially harmful content. Likewise, the responsibilities of school and home life may make your child feel as if they are drowning.
Eating disorders often crop up in these vulnerable years as your teen tries to fit into superficial ideals. Suicide rates among teens are also escalating, with 1 in 100,000 children ages 10 to 14 and 7 in 100,000 ages 15 to 19 committing suicide each year.
Mental health issues need to be treated as swiftly and carefully as any other illness. Dr. Tishanna Majette, PhD., is your local Marlton teen psychologist that can provide relief for your teen’s troubles.
