There are many dangers of allowing a mental health condition to go untreated. Some teens may drop out of school due to difficulties with academics, while others may turn to substance abuse or crime. Suicide is also a major risk for teens who aren’t receiving appropriate mental health care. Children and adolescents are especially vulnerable to sexual violence, which has a clear association with detrimental mental health. Some adolescents are at greater risk of mental health conditions due to their living conditions, stigma, discrimination or exclusion, or.

The most common mental health disorders in adolescents and teens fall into the categories of: anxiety disorders, stress-related disorders, mood disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorders, eating disorders, and disruptive-behavioral disorders (i.e. – attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder or oppositional defiant disorder). Mental health. Depression is one of the leading causes of illness and disability among adolescents, and suicide is the second leading cause of death in adolescents.

Violence, poverty, humiliation and feeling devalued can increase the risk of developing mental health problems. Mental illnesses are disorders of brain function. They have many causes and result from complex interactions between a person’s genes and their environment.

Having a mental illness is not a choice or moral failing. Mental illnesses occur at similar rates around the world, in every culture and in all socio economic groups. In the short-term, mental health problems can cause people to be alienated from their peers because of perceived unattractive personality traits or behaviors.

They can also cause anger, fear, sadness and feelings of helplessness if the person does not know or understand what is happening. Understand that mental health disorders are treatable: Arm yourself with information about the most common mental health disorders among adolescents; speak with your child’s pediatrician, your local health department, your religious leader, and your child’s school representatives about what sorts of information are available from them. Social media use may harm teens’ mental health by disrupting positive activities, study says CNN Social media use has been linked to depression, especially in.

Examples of these conditions include: Baby blues: The “baby blues” are when a. Masturbation is a fun and normal act used by many to explore their body and feel pleasure. Despite the myths, there are no physically harmful side effects of masturbation.

Other risk behaviors that relate to mental health problems include violent behavior, unsafe sexual behavior, and substance abuse.19 The risk factors for mental health problems among adolescents are numerous and start with genetics and the health of the mother.

Teens are more likely to have sleep and appetite problems (e.g., bulimia, anorexia), delusions, or OCD; they are at increased risk for high-risk behaviors (e.g., promiscuity, smoking, alcohol and drug abuse, suicide attempts).

One major motivation for widespread screening of adolescents is to prevent suicide, and recently screening instruments have been developed that are specifically designed to detect suicidality and related mental disorder in teens.

  • I have Autism and also suffering from depression. I acknowledge that I am suffering, yet believe that it can be used as an excuse for defiance or laziness, so I confine that to myself. Turns out I am lazy, staying up late, constantly eating, and paranoid. I would never tell of this problem. I am also confused of who I want to be in life. Ever since I was 14, I’ve been asked who I would be when I get older. I’d say, “I don’t know.” Now at 19, I still haven’t found an answer. I don’t know how much longer until I find one. Life was unstable already when I was young, I can expect the worst from my future.

  • I always hate life in my mind. I just need more friends, or more subscribers to make me better. Because so many people hates me in school for no reason ����

  • a whole nation not going to school after being in fear of an NRA guy shooting the school up. No matter what happens these kids will think different than those who are already done with school

  • i grew up a very caring and kind person but some situations changed me its left me depressed and i lost a meaning i life i do even know wether im happy or im just pretending i cant care for people like i used too and i feel like kindness is a weakness

  • Children are the future!Great Job being aware of childrens mental health! If you ever have time visit our page! https://www.becomeyoutoday.com/post/children-mental-health-awareness

  • Here is a frequent psychological pattern observed by anxious people,

    which is explained in the chapter “Exhaustion.” These people:

    Try out the relaxation method and keep focus -> Get good results -> Want to keep up these results -> However, receive disappointing results on the next attempt -> Become anxious -> Feel the need to go back -> Try to relax

    in order to get the good results back Here, the wrong steps are marked in red.

    Whether it’s good or bad, let go of the idea that you can continuously maintain those results. Stop resisting against uncertainties. Don’t think that the results are purely your responsibility.

  • Any parent that it is “surprise” about the mental health toll that this is going to give kids, is delusional.

    My kids are homeschooled and they are each other school mates, so they are handling it well, but if your child went to school and had friends, they are suffering right now. No matter how they seem to be managing it, they are going to need counseling when this is all over.

  • Tbh as a teenager I want to go too school…but now when I think about if I do go to school…I could get the virus and come home with it.Spreading it to my family in my home…soo I think it’s better to stay home even tho I been going Thur depression and anxiety at home…

  • Can someone tell me whats wrong? Please. I constanly feel i have to be smart or i have to happy or ppl will hate/dislike me. I make sure everyone is happy instead of myself. And if i cant i worry.

  • I think I might have aspergers, but i’m not sure. I can’t tell if it is that or bi-polar. I have some of the social problems that autistic people would have sometimes, but I can still hang out with people and make connections. I am pretty smart, I currently have a 3.9 and im in my senior year of mechanical engineering. The main problem im having right now is no real direction in life. Also, I have never really been in a relationship for over a month, and Ive never had sex. Do i sound like I’m Autistic? I dont want to be, but if i am i am.

  • I am an avid #MentalHealthAwareness advocate and performer, and I love this so much. I travel the country trying to bring that awareness on stages, in classrooms, hospitals, and on my YouTube channel, so I get excited when I see other advocates. ��❤

  • I can relate to all the things in this video… I’ve been acting like this since kindergarten plus I have a family who actually does have anxiety and if I bring it up I’ll just get bashed for “faking it” I just don’t understand �� I’ve never been to mental doctor or whatever… I went to a therapist for one day over me “poking” someone with a plastic spork over purple play dough ��

  • Are you looking to take control of your body?

  • “tonight wasn’t the same without you.”, “are you ok? you can talk to me.” where are those people in my life? not even my mom has asked me that, and I’m so deep in the shit I can hardly breath.

  • I have Anxiety and Depression because of bullying I got bullied for 5 years and surprisingly it is still happening I need Help really bad

  • Please! PTSD from staying at home?. come on, these kids aren’t forced to go fight in a war! Learn to be a little more patient. Boredom at home is not a cause for PTSD

  • I have some of these but, I remember this one time I wanted to kill myself so grabbed a hose and I wanted to choke myself but I figured it was wrong. Then my mom knocked on the door and told me why I was taking so long and well I came up an excuse.
    She proceeded to leave and in a low voice I heard her call me an asshole. I then wanted to kill myself even harder but all the times I’ve tried, I just can’t do it for fear of what’s going to happen if I survive. ��������

  • I want to search for help but my mom doesn’t believe me. She says that every 14 years old girl goes trough a fake/attention depression

  • Undoubtably, but very little will change as a result because our children’s well-being doesn’t seem to be our nations focus anymore.

  • Dear all
    Who ever watching this video and feeling that you are also in depression,do one thing.
    First adopt yourself to mechanical life.i mean to say that work more,eat adequately,sleep at right time,share your problems with some one who understands and give suggestions.never hesitate to consult a doctor if needed.pray to GOD, always keep a HOPE that I CAN get out of it..

  • All mental health problems are caused by severe calcium deficiency. This begins in the womb or in infancy. The human body can assimilate calcium only from fresh, natural foods especially leafy greens and grasses, wheatgrass. Artificial supplements do not work. The best way to get the calcium from greens is through green smoothies.

    Brain chemical imbalances have never
    been proved.

    One of the reasons why mental health problems generally develop or manifest in late adolescence is because of the body’s need for tremendous amounts of calcium due to the sudden spurt in physical growth.

    Calcium is needed for proper neurotransmitter function.

    It is also important to minimise chronic cellular inflammation by avoiding white sugar, refined carbs and oils and fats that increase cellular inflammation.

    Cellular inflammation prevents the absorption of nutrients vitamins and minerals.

  • This is why I wonder if I have depression sometimes. I’ll explain:
    I sometimes get swings of sadness or anger when I’m just chilling at home and nothings wrong. Or I get really happy for no reason.(they usually aren’t that intense)
    I have had sleeping problems for years
    I have considered self harm but the weird thing is that I’m not even upset or have a reason to, I just think “what if I did this,what would it be like” (I also chew my skin off my fingers and lips and scratch myself really hard when I’m not really that itchy)
    I’ve started to try and stay away from people, or just randomly question why I even have IRL friends(I have online ones and they’re basically family to me.) For some reason I just don’t feel as close to people I know in real life
    I constantly question why I exist or just things in general.
    I never really get upset, I’m usually calm and I almost feel dead at time
    I’m probably just exaggerating and I’m fine but idk.(it sounds worse in text then it is)

  • My anxiety got so bad that I would say something nice to someone whenever I left the room because I was scared that would be my last words to them, or the last words they heard.

  • Fun experiment:
    Try to see if a close friend or someone you know very well has these symptoms and come to a grim realization your best bud may be highly depressed

  • ive been thinking about death/suicide a lot for small reasons. i get angry easily and i just recently failed my first test of the year and ive been bumbed about it all day. i considered choking myself with a belt in the locker room at school but i just couldnt do it. im scared to tell my parents about it bc theyd ask a bunch of questions and i dont feel safe telling them about it. my parents scare me when it comes to me being honest w them bc they make me feel like a burden.

  • Teacher: ok ima to make one of my students life a hell
    Me: chilling with happy face that I am sitting alone
    Teacher: I guess I found one
    Teacher: put me next to boy that was my old bully
    Me first day: okay just gonna ignore this bastard and I am going to live
    Next day
    Me: having panick attack of sitting next to him + my crush is sitting Infront of me

  • Got Anxiety disorder for sure possibly bipolar cause i could get screamed at and suddenly get really happy and start laughing i have the sleeping problems and were everything seems to be going completely wrong had a mental breakdown and panic attack over it and almost fainted also have the last one 100% lol i suck at life��

  • My theory is that what we interpret as “mental retardation” is really hyper intelligence misunderstood. Case in point: Albert Einstein.

  • ya know most places say that if u are having mental problems reach out and talk to people expecting people to do it but seriously like hell I ant gonna do that I keep it inside where no one knows

  • Having some qualities as an autist doesn’t mean that you aren’t sick. Actually that statement is quite ignorant and… autistic. Stephen Hawking was a genius but he still was sick as fuck. Being good at something doesn’t mean that you are not sick and I find this bullshit profoundly unethical. “Why should this autistic child be treated? He is not sick, he is special!” just WTF.

  • Everything you said I experienced to myself
    I don’t know that I had depression since I was 9years old first my Father was very strict and he always beat me when I was a child. My Mother was always bullied me everytime my Father scolded me, she even pushed me strongly every time I hug and kissed her. I feel so rejected. Aside from that most of my classmates was bullied me when I was in elementary. As I grow older I was always feeling shy, worried and could not concentrate with my studies. Aside from that I had no confidence to myself in everything I do. Now I am 35 years old I just starting to have confidence to myself because of my employer who treated me as a member of the family. I also keep praying to God that I could overcome these kind of sickness. And thanks God I feel recovering and healing through my faith to him.

  • As a teen I’ve been experiencing more anxiety and definitely anxious. I thought quarantine would be fun but once it gets to you it’s your enemy.

  • Ok. If anyone is too afraid to talk to a professional about any of these symptoms, please dont be afraid to text me. 8162673791 I dont wanna deal with no trolls, so if you wanna joke with me, dont. But if you genuinely need help, text me

  • Memom I need to talk. I’ve been feeling really down lately and think i would benefit from talking to a mental health professional.

  • I think that with Autism, it could be related to the X chromosome instead of the Y because it is seen in both boys and girls. However, because it is a 5x more likely hood that boys get it as opposed to girls, that leads me to believe that the X chromosome has a high reaction rate to the Y chromosome




  • When you know that you have all the anxiety disorder signs but your parents never believed on metal illnesses so you learned to deal/live with it.
    Like, i know I am, cuz trust me, there some things that aren’t normal at my age. Not that I know this recently, I knew i had years with this but I feel the same way, even on this quarantine time is getting worst. I haven’t went outside since march 16, and last week was hard to me. I went to the optics for an eye examination and then I had to pay for the glasses but i didn’t wanted so i told my mom to do it for me and she just told me i’m dumb and I’m old enough to make by myself these kind of things.��
    Not that I’m too old, just that I’m still on college cuz i had struggles by choosing a career and I’m still living with them.
    Fun fact, i study dentistry so have to see patients, they always ask me how I’m gonna do to deal with it. I always answer that is not the same cuz I always have uniform, a coping, and my knowledge to deal some. Also, I can use a mask and the A/C on a clinic on, to cover with the sweat of the anxious feeling.��

  • Its funny how you can make a video on mental disabilities, but if you say “mental disabilities” in a comment on a post about anything else they automatically flag your comment and remove it

  • Many Kids develop depression BECAUSE of school. School is an unnatural environment for kids. They don’t develop at the same time. They can’t turn their minds on and off at the sound of a bell. They are not all hungry at the same time. They all can’t go to the restroom in between classes. Many are denied going to the restroom during “important” classes like math or science and they have to hold it until they go to “less important” classes. Some kids are not brought up well by parents or guardians, so they affect the other kids in school (bullying, harassment).
    Not all, but many children lose hope in these institutions they are forced to attend. This creates anxiety because their parents have been wrung through the system themselves and are oblivious to how it has changed them. Kids start to think “Is this how it’s supposed to be like? ” They start feeling helpless because the people who are supposed to be helping and protecting them are making them go to a place with all these other kids which might not share similar values thus adding to the stress all day. Also, there is no time just for themselves to rest their minds from keeping their guard up all day. Not all, but many kids go through this day after day.

  • I think I have a lot if not all symptoms of autism. But when I try to bring it up I get told to stop because it’s insensitive idk what to do

    Are you Looking for natural/ traditional medicine to schizophrenia/ Mental health issues without any side effect? Dr. ZAIN is the best because he apply accent ways of healing with spiritual means, After my son being diagnosed of schizophrenia in 2019, I have used numerous medicine for him with no improvement. He spent most of the summer in the hospital. I remember him feeling abandoned and terrified of the many injection needles that seemed necessary to keep him calm. All Western Medicine used in the past did not have any noticeable difference,one day as i was going through the internet i came across so many people with schizophrenia and other mental health issues testifying about DR. ZAIN traditional remedies,i ordered for it online,that’s when he started using the Medicine,and now he is completely cured from schizophrenia, his medicine is a permanent cure to schizophrenia, contact Dr Zain on his Email ( [email protected])

  • I think we should all have time for ourselves and our family and try to make money for them.
    I think we should be able to provide for our children needs.
    I recommend MRS Monroe’s trading platform.

  • Whenever I have panic attacks because of school or anything like that or have a “depressive” episode (I say that very loosely because I am not diagnosed by a professional) my parents think that I’m getting bullied, I’m not. I don’t know what’s wrong with me and I want to get help but if I ask it feels like I’m being an attention whore and just saying that for attention. I have very very low self esteem with basically all aspects of my life and I just want that to stop. I want it all to stop

  • “You’ve started thinking about self-harm or suicide”

    well. I’ve been trying for two years now.
    My family has only just started to try to talk now when my mind is made up. awesome.
    I still want to visit a professional. Just to know if there’s something actually wrong with me or I’m actually crazy as I’ve overheard my family discussing. I just hope my brother can get help. He feels similarly becuase of bullying and I can’t do much.
    I don’t feel that scared about revealing it right now. Maybe becuase I’ve got my mind set. I hope all of the others who feel this way can find a reason to stay. I think that’s important. I’m not good with this, becuase I’m done playing therapist, but I hope you all find something that makes you happy and want to live on. My best wishes to you.

  • I can relate to most of these mainly the Out-Bursts of anger and a lot of the depression stuff, I also have suicidal thoughts every day, and sometimes there are days where I think: “Is today the day I end it all?” but I never do… I want to reach out for help, but I’m too scared to go to my parents that they might think it’s my friends when it’s not and that my mom will think it’s because of the internet and my phone when it’s not, it’s the people at school that make fun of the things I like and genetics, both my parents have depression and depression can be passed through genetics, I also recently back in February had a family fight where it ended up with my aunt, uncle, and cousin leaving us… that hurt me bad cause I loved my cousin to death and I still hate myself knowing there was something I could of done to stop it…

  • so I can’t sleep so good but always feel tired in the day, and when i try to relax i don’t feel good and when i start to relax i feel super dizzy i think i don’t know but it feels like i’m moving around and i get dizzy

  • There’s over 1,000 discovered neurological medical conditions not relating to the brain…

    Also your claims are biased at a higher percentage women have more mental disorders not just being hormonal they even have a higher level of bad dopamine than men…explains their biased irrationality and their low value to being valueless..
