How to Use This Site
A teen you work with has offered you a glimpse into the difficult emotions he or she is struggling with. You care and you want to help, but aren't sure where to start. Here to Listen offers the tools to talk about emotional issues in an effective and caring way. Here's how:

1. Before meeting with the teen again, read through our Expert Advice section for content that will help you feel informed, comfortable, and grounded in your approach.

2. Search our true stories by teens and select one to read together. We encourage you to take turns with your teen reading the story out loud.

3. Select an activity from our Activities for Youth section that you feel will help you both effectively have a difficult conversation about things that matter.
