Counseling

If things you are feeling or doing begin to interfere with your normal, everyday activities, you may need to try counseling. If you or someone close to you is experiencing one or more of the following warning signs, counseling can be helpful:

  • Sudden changes in mood or behavior
  • Depression—feeling unhappy for a long time
  • Anxiety—strong feelings of fear or nervousness
  • Losing temper over small things
  • Dropping grades

TEEN LINE in the Los Angeles area, (310-855-4673), in the San Fernando Valley area (818-432-2266) and in the Riverside area (951-826-4673) can assist you in locating the best and/or closest place for you to get counseling. You might also talk with your school counselor and see what assistance she or he can provide.

Once you contact a counseling center, you can ask whether your parents’ permission is required for you to receive services. Ask about special services for teens, fees, and appointment times. Many counseling centers adjust their fees based on your ability to pay. (This is usually called a sliding scale.)

Don’t turn away from yourself. If a friend came to you with problems, you would try to help. Be as kind to yourself as you would to a friend. Turn to counseling for assistance.
