Risk Factors

Young people often hide their difficulties. Many experience strong feelings of stress, depression, anger, confusion, and self-doubt. For some, vandalism, stealing, hostility, promiscuity, and alcohol/drug abuse are ways of dealing with these feelings.

If you are seeing any of these signs, your child or teen may be at risk.
