A bout of poor mental health isn’t a reason to panic any more than a bout of poor physical health. Both simply require some special care and attention for a space of time. As parents, we can build resilience in our teens to help them hold onto good mental health. We can intentionally develop character strengths, interpersonal and life skills, and values to navigate the difficulties of life.
