Teen Stress: Although stress is a normal part of life, and teen stress has always been an issue, the intensity and frequency of those stressors have increased in recent years. According to a Feb. 2014 study by the American Psychological Association, approximately 1/3 of teens polled described their level of stress increasing over time and over 40% of that same group report not doing enough to manage their stress. What can you do? Students and families are welcome to talk with their assigned counselor about stress related issues and possible coping strategies. Resources and information about teen stress are also available under the "parent resources" tab above.
