Link: Managing Stress

According to the 20Screen shot 2014-06-03 at 1.40.19 PM13 B.C. Adolescent Health Survey, 13% of females and 5% of males say that in the last month they have had stress so extreme, it kept them from functioning properly. Between the ages of 13 and 16 the overall number of youth reporting debilitating stress rose by 10% over the last year.

One online resource to give youth a practical, step by step plan for dealing with stress and the anxiety around it is found at Helpguide.org. They provide a free online “emotional intelligence toolkit” to help young people build skills to figure out their emotions and manage their stress.
