Mayo clinic defines mental health as, "a person’s condition with regard to their psychological and emotional well-being." An individual's mental health may be damaged, or even failing, but this does not mean that their mental state is permanently damaged. With proper mental health counseling, a psychologically ailing individual can restore their mental health, and live a productive, healthy lifestyle. This is an important notion for a parent of a psychologically struggling teen to know.
Unfortunately, many young people struggle with the state of their mental health. Many young men and women struggle with age of adolescence and young adulthood due to the new stresses that these transitional phases bring. If a young person is ill-prepared to face the new struggles of this transitional phase, they may lash out and display negative behavioral patterns. Luckily for young people such as these, there are treatment options to assist them in restoring their mental state.
