Pegastressed? Spring Stress management for our CAHS Scholars

A study by the American Psychological Association found that American teens report experiences with stress that follow a similar pattern as adults. Specifically, teens reported that their stress level during the school year far exceeds what they believe to be healthy (5.8 versus 3.9 on a 10-point scale) Even during the summer teens reported their stress levels higher than what they believe is healthy (4.6 versus 3.9 on a 10-point scale). Many teens also report feeling overwhelmed (31 percent) and depressed or sad (30 percent) as a result of stress. More than one-third of teens report fatigue or feeling tired (36 percent) and nearly one-quarter of teens (23 percent) report skipping a meal due to stress. Please stop in to the counseling office to learn more about individual steps you can take to react to stressors in a positive way.
