Jefferson County data shows that many teens don't have an adult to go to when they need to talk.

You are visiting this website because you care about a teen. Thank you for caring. When parents and other adults who care about teenagers have real conversations, ask and answer questions, and encourage help-seeking behavior from teens, they develop trust. Teens with a trusted adult in their life tend to have more school success, avoid problems with substance misuse, and experience better mental health.

Be that adult for a teen in your life.
