Stress Resources for Teens & Young Adults

Stress is impossible to avoid completely, but learning how to handle high levels of stress is an important skill to master in life. 

Teen & young adult stress

When individual stressors add up, they turn into compounded stress that leads to overwhelming feelings. They can then manifest into both psychological and physical symptoms, such as irritability and anger, mood swings, sleeping problems, eating issues, or frequent sickness.

There are several types of stress a therapist can help diagnose, including acute stress, chronic stress, toxic stress, and even positive stress. The symptoms, frequency, and severity can help your practitioner accurately identify the type of stress and create a treatment plan.
