Teens Support Groups
The teenage years are an important time when children prepare for adult life as well as a future independent from their parents. Many teenagers find these years particularly stressful, confusing, and overwhelming as they attempt to make all the right decisions concerning their personal relationships, present and future education, health, and lifestyle choices.
This condition is very common, and it is not unlike adult depression. Teenagers who suffer from psychotic episodes of depression often report having hallucinations. Other common depressive signs/symptoms in teens include a gradual decline in school performance, relationship problems, avoidance of social situations, lack of enthusiasm or energy and/or changes in sleep and/or eating habits.
Relatives and parents need to always be alert for potential signs and symptoms of depression in their teens. They require lots of love and attention. Parents and their teens can obtain support and practical tips on coping with depression at our teen depression support group.Teen Eating Disorders
Eating disorders are extremely common in the United States. It is estimated that one or two out of every one hundred students will struggle with an eating disorder at some point. Hence, thousands of teenagers will eventually develop some sort of eating disorder affecting their weight, eating habits and/or body image.
When you become an active member of an online support group, designed for teens struggling with eating disorders, you will typically meet other teens who are in the process of and/or have successfully conquered their disorder. You can also share your own problems and tell your personal story.STDs in Teens
AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome) is an example of a sexually transmitted disease (STD) that teens can contract. It destroys the immune system making an infected person susceptible to other infections and/or tumors. While there is no cure for AIDS, modern multiple drug therapies can successfully manage this disease for many years.MDJunction Offers Solutions
