In a school with over 3,000 students, you easily see hundreds of peers in the six minutes during hall passing. You barely pay attention to those around, let alone what they may be going through. Some may hide it with a smile, while others simply keep their head down. Teen mental health has been a concern over the years, with the most common disorders being anxiety, depression, unusual eating behaviors and attention deficit hyperactivity. There are ways to improve your mental health including  talking to others, such as your parents, friends, teachers, or counselors and doing things you like, such as yoga or listening to music. What you feel is important and shouldn’t go unnoticed, we’re all in this together.
