In this day and age, it can be difficult for youth and teens to navigate school obligations, social interactions, family issues, and more.

Without adequate support, youth and teens may struggle immensely with their mental and emotional health and live miserable lives.

That’s where teen and youth counseling/therapy can help. Whether you are located in downtown Springfield, the suburbs of Springfield, other nearby places such as Florissant, Peoria, or anywhere else in Illinois, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.

Signs Your Child Can Use Youth/Teen Therapy

It can be challenging to determine whether you should seek professional help for your child. Youth and teens may need counseling for the following reasons:

  • They isolate themselves from their friends.
  • Their school grades are slipping.
  • They make reckless decisions.
  • They often seem sad or worried.

If a child exhibits any of the above signs, consider speaking with a therapist about teen or youth counseling. If you are curious to learn more about how you can help your child, read licensed therapist Stephanie Olarte’s tips about teen/youth therapy and how parents can get involved.
