⁣⁣⁣
3️⃣ 𝘊𝘰𝘯𝘯𝘦𝘤𝘵 𝘸𝘪𝘵𝘩 𝘰𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘳𝘴. Spending time with friends or family can be crucial to a teen’s mental health. Organized activities are great, but even just hanging out and spending quality time can help make them feel supported and secure! 💙 ⁣⁣

4️⃣ 𝘕𝘢𝘵𝘶𝘳𝘦. Taking a hike in the woods or even a quick walk in the park can help your teen feel peaceful and grounded. Have them choose somewhere they feel safe so they can relax and enjoy their surroundings. 🌳⁣⁣⁣
