Teen Life Kids These Days

    • Kids & Family

Part of being a teen is realizing that things are not as simple as they seem. That there’s a darker side to the world that maybe we’re just seeing for the first time. It’s also a time when -- some of us, hopefully -- figure out ways to navigate that.


If you or someone you know is facing immediate harm because of suicidal or homicidal thoughts or actions, please get help now:


Call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at (800) 273-TALK (8255).
Text HOME to the Crisis Text Line at 741-741.
Call the University of Michigan Psychiatric Emergency Services at 734-936-5900

Mental health resources for teens


Society for the Prevention of Teen Suicide 


The Trevor Project (for LGBTQ) 


HelpGuide (for teen depression) 


Nemours TeensHealth (for relationships, body image, families, emotions) 

Additional mental health resources for parents, and families, and educators at our website.
