The Challenges Our Teens Face Life for teens today is no playground. It’s a jungle out there, a toxic mix of tough choices, peer pressure and personal insecurities. There’s the added pressure to excel academically, burgeoning school workloads and maintaining their image in the virtual world of social media. But with no ‘life skills’ training, it’s little wonder there is a record increase among teens of low self-esteem, depression, self-harm, relationship issues (with both peers and family) and destructive behaviours like pornography, and addictions to the all-pervasive electronic devices and media.

Mental Health The reasons for the significant decline in teenage mental health over the past decade are varied and complex. Life for teenagers these days is a toxic cocktail: the relentless pressure to maintain an image of perfection, a ubiquitous social media addiction, a lack of meaningful relationships, increased academic workloads and pressure to perform, all coupled with a dearth of the practical, emotional and social skills with which to address these issues.
