Nathan Wallis - The Teen Brain

Nathan Wallis

Covid has put all of us in an unpredictable environment and this has added layers of complexity to an already complex time of life – especially for children and teens already dealing with issues around anxiety and depression.

During adolescence parts of the teenage brain are “shut for renovations” . This is the part of the brain responsible for regulating the teenager’s moods, for understanding consequences, maintaining focus and for thinking about the well-being of others. And the ‘teen’ years can start as early as 9 and end anywhere from 18 to 32 years of age!
