Information in the “Teen’s Can” webpages can help build your teen’s resiliency and support their mental health.

While we all face challenges from time to time, 1 in 5 will develop a mental illness. Seventy percent of mental health problems begin during childhood or adolescence.

If you’re concerned about your teen’s behaviour, talk to them and get help if needed from a health care provider.

Also,check out our Parents' Self-Care section.
