SUPPORT FOR YOUTHS
Youth is a time for discovery and transition. Many feelings are new and unfamiliar.
These may affect our mind, body and spirit in many ways that may overwhelm and
cause uncertainty and imbalance.
If you are in distress - reach out and seek help now. Your feelings are real and you're not alone in your struggles. It is possible to find someone who will listen and understand. Together we can plan a way forward and live well, one day at a time.
