The developmental challenges of being a teenager are intense. These days teens juggle: academics, extra curricular activities, relationships with family & friends, increasing responsibility, sexuality, drugs/alcohol and social media scrutiny. Teen suicide attempts have risen in Williamson County because adolescents here are juggling all of this as well as increasing pressure to achieve. It’s more than most teens can developmentally handle.
