Family and Community
What strengthens our mind
Humans are social animals, meaning that our relationship with family and friends allow us to be at our best. Our mental health is forged and strengthened by bonds we make throughout our lifetime. Naturally, it is then those bonds that form the strongest safety net whenever we tackle the countless challenges in life.
Everybody is unique, and we all have our own reaction and responses to different situations. By acknowledging that and asking the right questions about a teenager’s family and social structure, we can tease out their tendencies and quirks. On top of that, the teenager can gain a more retrospective view of themselves that they might be previously unfamiliar with. Through self-discovery, risk factors leading to mental health issues can be unveiled.
