Behaviour, emotions and coping

Sometimes teenagers go through hard periods in life

Some may find it hard to make friends, keep up with schoolwork or have experienced bullying. These things can become overwhelming and lead to stress, anxiety or depression. These challenges can influence behaviour. A person may feel frustrated but have an inability to communicate. They may experience pain or discomfort but can’t tell anyone. They may feel uncertain when their routine or environment change without warning. Understanding the reasons why behaviour occurs can help prevent that behaviour from reoccurring.

Positive behaviour support may help teenagers who are experiencing emotional or behavioural difficulties, or mental health challenges such as anxiety or depression. That way you can find the right approaches to manage what you are experiencing. It is good to learn healthy ways to deal with these challenges, you can ask for help from someone you trust. This could be your doctor, teacher, school counsellor, close friend or family member. The important thing is to let someone know how you are feeling.
