    The beginning of the school year is exciting, stressful, and everything in between. One of the best parts of going back to school is seeing all of your friends.
    The fall is also a really hard time for people- especially High School and College students. It’s busy, stressful, and overwhelming. This is a time of year when anxiety and depression peak. Young people turn to things like self harm, substance use, and other risky and harmful behaviors to cope, and suicide attempts peak.
    Often times, when we struggle, we don’t know who to turn to. Our friends are our first line of support. Sometimes, they see us struggling before we even decide we want to reach out.
    Check out this site, Seize The Awkward.We have to be there for our friends, and even though it might seem awkward- seize the moment and make sure they’re doing ok.
