Looking back as an adult, you may remember teen years as some of the best years of your life; but being a teenager can be very stressful. Growing pains, changing friendship dynamics, new relationships, family issues, school, jobs, sports; today’s teens have a lot going on.

Mental and emotional stress can cause significant problems if left unmanaged. Too much stress, too often, can cause health problems and can affect home life and school performance. But teens can take control of stress by learning relaxation techniques and stress management strategies. This workshop works particularly well in health classes.
