    Adolescent Mental Health Disorders: Adults’ Negative Reactions Can “Amp” Conflic

    in Health

    Mental health includes decision making, communication, and handling life’s pressure. When an adolescent has a mental health disorder, it may negatively impact the person’s ability to handle stress and interact with others. The National Advisory Mental Health Council estimates that 1 in 5 adolescents suffer from one or more mental disorders. Although mental illness can be mistaken as normal adolescent development, there are signs and symptoms that an adult can recognize. Recognizing these hidden mental health signs early can be important in preventing teen substance abuse, family conflicts, school violence, or even suicide in teens.


    Dr. Cynthia Morton is a licensed professional counselor who works with adolescents in grades 9-12. In addition to her licensure, she is a certified mediator, peer educator, and youth mental health first aid trainer who trains adults and teens in peer mediation, peer helping skills, and peer listening. She conducts extensive training in the areas of suicide prevention, crisis, and youth mental health awareness for school personnel. Currently, she serves as the chair of the Education, Research, and Training Section for the Association for Conflict Resolution.
