Teenagers – 13 to 17 years: The teenage years can be an exciting but challenging time full of change and new experiences. Teenagers aren’t always sure where they fit it and will begin experimenting with relationships, behaviour, and lifestyles. It is also a time of increased responsibilities with many teenagers learning to juggle work, increased school commitments and time for family and friends. Sometimes this can become overwhelming and if not managed can lead to problems such as stress, anxiety and depression.
