Intervention: Writing Therapy:
Writing is a kind of therapy that will prove to be very effective. It is effective in helping to solve any type of troubled teens behavior including, drugs and substance abuse, anger management issues, and depression. Writing is a good way to start coping with depression. It's not aggressive, it's something people can do by themselves, and it allows the chance to see individual feelings in black and white, and then make plans to do something about them. Journaling is an effective form of self-help writing. If its done in earnest, and a person works through their
resistance, they will improve at it. Once the thoughts are externalized, and out of the mind and onto paper, then there's no longer a mystique attached to them. Writing about important personal experiences is not only good for a person’s mental health; it can inspire and uplift the soul, awaken the heart and ignite the purpose. Writing can develop communication, and help to approach and deal with some of a persons deepest thoughts, hurts, fears, and concerns. Learn to become creative and feel rewarded about it. Writing enables an individual to get out their
emotions and tell what they have been through in life.

"This world demands the qualities of youth: not a time of life but a state of mind, a temper of the will, a quality of imagination, a predominance of courage over timidity, of the appetite for adventure over the life of ease." - Robert Kennedy.
