Teenage Brain

When you’re a teenager, so much is changing that it can be a strange, exciting and sometimes scary time. Not only is your body changing, but your brain is changing too. 

During your teenage years (aged 11-19) there is a huge amount of growing and changing going on inside your brain. Connections are being made between different brain parts and this can affect the way you think about things, how you react, what you like and dislike.  

This is a very normal part of teenage development. If you’re struggling with your emotions, there’s plenty of support available.
