Food Allergy Teen Mental Health: Finding balance & when to ask for help

Teen mental health panel

We want to address teen mental health as it relates to food allergies. Sometimes it feels like the world dealt you a crap hand of cards. You can’t hang out with friends without preplanning. You can sense your parents are trying to keep their stress and frustration about managing your food allergies a secret, but you hear their whispers. You really want to date but thinking about the whole kissing situation gives you anxiety. 

Let’s face it, being a teen is hard, being a food allergy teen can sometimes feel impossible. That’s why we are talking about how to find balance and ask for help as a food allergy teen. 

  • How do you know if how/what you are feeling is normal? 
  • Who can you turn to if you can’t talk to your parents?
  • How do you find balance and not let anger be your go-to mode?
