- Healthy Children’s Articles on Emotional Problems
- Project YES
- Project YES (Youth Empowerment & Support) is an anonymous research study being run by scientists at Stony Brook University in collaboration with The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. Any teen (ages 11 to 17) is welcome to be a part of it. Our goal is to give teens a chance to learn new ways of dealing with stress while helping other teens do the same.
- You will have the chance to try out four different single-session experiences, or online activities. Each activity will let you learn about different ways young people can think about and cope with everyday problems.
A child’s behaviors can be very difficult to manage and sometimes it can be hard to know what is normal for their age.
We are now able to distribute a self-help guide created by Boston Children’s Clinicians through MyChart to help manage some of these behaviors. Contact us to request a copy for your child.
If you still have concerns, feel free to call us to discuss them with their provider.
