In order to maintain mental health, adolescents should

  • Enjoy spending time together with family and friends.
  • Deal with problems as they arise, rather than letting them build up.
  • Talk to trusted family members, friends, other parents or teachers if you have any concerns.

  • Develop and maintain healthy eating habits.
  • Get lots of regular sleep. Quality sleep will help to manage a busy life, stress and responsibilities.
