  • It sounds like you’re going through a really tough time and experiencing some big overwhelming feelings.  I appreciate you reaching out to TeenCentral—it takes courage and shows your advocation for yourself.  If you look through the tabs on our website, such as our “Learn” tab, you will be linked to helpful information on topics like “Depression” and “Anxiety.”
  • If you’re ever feeling unsafe with yourself, or sad to a point like where you feel like you can’t go on you should reach out to the Suicide Prevention Lifeline.  They are open 24 hours a day- 365 days a year.  You can call 1-800-273-8255 or  You could also always just text “Hello” to 741-741 if that’s more comfortable for you.  Someone is waiting to communicate and help you whenever you might need it.
  • It’s good to recognize trusted adults that you can reach out to and talk to.  Either a teacher, or coach, or family friend. Conversations with people we trust and look up to can greatly affect our mindset and give us fresh perspective to tackle our problems. Have you ever tried using coping skills to help calm your mind and body? There are countless things we can do to help cope with our situations, and even if coping skills haven’t helped you in the past, there’s always new things to try.


  • Writing/Journaling—Talking to someone isn’t always easy or possible, so you could try writing down how you feel. There’s a “Positive Daily Reminder” under the “Tools” tab on our site that’s super helpful.
  • Wellness/Meditation—Deep breathing exercises are fantastic ways to self-soothe and cope during difficult times. Yoga or hiking are other ways to engage our bodies and in turn help our minds find some peace when we might feel static and depressed.
  • Hobbies/Interests—Finding other activities that help you feel at ease can make rough times easier. Going out into nature or to a park with friends, or if you’re more into video games, maybe finding a positive online community to relate to is something will help you more.
