Fort Lauderdale Hospital understands that there are many stressors uniquely linked to being an adolescent. You yearn to be well received by your peers, you want to do well in school, you want to make your family proud and, most importantly, you want to succeed in life. It’s completely normal to worry about these pressures. However, when a person becomes overwhelmed by these feelings it is possible for other emotions to form. These emotions can include rage, worthlessness and event hopelessness.
