It’s that time again! After the textbooks get cracked open you know it’s only so long before the leaves start falling and we are into the fall season. Because we are teens here at the YouthLine just like you, we completely understand that getting back into the swing of the school year can be a very difficult and stressful time. On top of the late nights spent studying and hours worth of homework, teens have many other responsibilities at home that have to be juggled. That’s not even counting time set aside to hang with some friends or even just an hour or two to relx and maybe watch a movie or read a book. If you’re anything like me and the other YouthLiners, there are times where by the end of the day you are so exhausted and overwhelmed that you feel like a balloon that’s ready to pop. So remember that any time you feel as though you’ve reached the end of your rope and have zero patience left, you are not alone! That is why we YouthLiners exist. Not only can we relate to how you are feeling, we care so much and are willing to sit on the phone and let you vent about whatever is on your mind or maybe even help you think of some solutions to a problem you are having at school or at home. Sometimes a listening ear from someone who totally understands is all it takes to feel like a load has been lifted and get rejuvenated to face another day. Keep in mind that the YouthLine hours are switching back to Monday-Friday from 4-9pm (Pacific Time). Teens are available during these hours to talk on the phone, text, or instant message.

We look forward to hearing from you (:
