Stress & Anxiety Tips

Stress and anxiety are becoming major issues for teenagers these days, and many do not know how to manage these feelings. Right now, as teens deal with exams and college decisions, parents and adults can take time to connect with teens about the best ways to manage their stress and anxiety.

Here at Pelham PACT, we encourage adults to connect with youth about stress and what to do. Talk with youth about what is causing stress and anxiety, and why these issues are worrying them. Care by listening to their hopes, goals, and desires, without adding additional pressures.
