In brief: Change in behavior

Mental illnesses can present in a huge variety of ways.
Often signs include a change in behavior, change in school performance, becoming more withdrawn, losing interest in previously enjoyable activities, etc. Talk to your teen consistently and let them know that if they ever need help you are there for support.
