What might help?
There are lots of things that can happen to young people which can affect emotional wellbeing and behaviour. Take a look at our Common Issues page, especially if you’re worried about something in particular.
Taking care of yourself is also important. Explore our self-care resources HERE.

As the links below explain, a lot is happening in the teenage brain. Some behavioural changes are perfectly normal so it can be difficult to know exactly when to become concerned or seek support.
If your child has gone through something significant (see our Common Issues page), it might be useful for them, and possibly you, to talk this through with someone. If this isn’t the case but your child’s behaviour or upset continues, it’s probably worth getting further support.
