This reassuring video focuses on several real teens who are struggling with some of the most common psychological problems that occur in adolescence: anxiety disorders, depression, eating disorders, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and substance abuse disorder. Are these disorders hereditary? How do they develop, and why? How common are they among teens? What can a person do to cope with them? This eye-opening program answers these questions and many others. The main points emphasized are that although psychological disorders can interfere with having a productive life, with persistence and guidance from a mental health professional, they can be overcome. The real teens featured in the program share their personal struggles and ultimately affirm that young people can successfully manage their psychological disorders. Follow-up activities in the Teacher's Resource Book encourage students to further explore the topic.
Includes Resource Guide.
