Attention Michigan Teens
The COVID-19 pandemic has created emotional distress within Michigan's educational community. Parents, teachers, students and staff are feeling anxious, depressed and uncertain about the future. These feelings are normal and understandable-and it can help to talk to someone.

  *   Be Kind to Your Mind.
  *   Call the Michigan Stay Well counseling line for free emotional support.
  *   Dial 1-888-535-6136 and press "8."
  *   Remain on the line until you hear the prompt to speak with a Stay Well counselor.
  *   This service is free, confidential, and available 24/7.
  *   For more guidance on coping with pandemic-related distress, visit Michigan.gov/StayWell.
 
Being a teenager can be hard-and when a pandemic disrupts your normal routines, it can get a lot harder. You may feel disappointed, depressed, and anxious about the future. How about connecting with other teens from around the state to share your feelings and compare experiences? Register for a virtual support group designed especially for 14-to-17-years-olds, hosted by our Stay Well counseling team.
