          I completely agree with Clarence S. in their article “Parents Need to Take Their Teen’s Mental Health Seriously.” Teens today are very vulnerable to depression and anxiety, a few mental health problems among them all. It’s not easy having to grow up in the conditions teens have been presented with nowadays with social media being one of them. Mental health can even worsen if one tells their parents and they deny one’s symptoms. If parents were more open with their kids on these issues teens, as Clarence said, would be “more comfortable talking with their parents and tell them more personal things". This in turn could possible possibly decrease mental health issues worldwide. It's an issue that cannot necessarily be solved overnight but by just spreading the word like Clarence did we can begin to move to a better place with our understanding on mental health issues. Thank you Clarence for speaking up on these issues that continue to afflict teens of today.
