Teen Assistants team from Ćićevac was chosen as one of the seven best at this year’s Upshift finals and it received financial support from UNICEF for its idea.
The team consists of four girls: Anđela Nedeljković, Teodora Đorđević, Mina Raičević and Mina Stojanović, who understood the importance of adolescents’ mental health and the problem that hardly someone takes care of it. Unfortunately, anxiety and depression of young people are more and more common these days. Lack of self-confidence, public pressure, bad role models and lots of other modern society factors lead to poor mental health of entire population, especially the young. Being aware of that problem, which is very little discussed of, our girls want to show their peers that everything can be solved and that it is not wrong to feel bad and ask for help. The four of them, together with their mentor Suzana Gajić Jovanović, are going to start a site where they will publish educative contents on mental health. The young teenage assistants also have their pages on Instagram, Facebook and You Tube, where various information and contents can be found.
You can access their social media through following links:
On this site there is a section where you can contact our psychotherapist Milica Stamenković and ask her questions:
ZOOM chat rooms are also planned every second Sunday from 6 p.m. and everyone is welcome to discuss, share experiences and help. You can find details on the above mentioned social media.
Get active and help us become a better community and help the young.
Support Teen Assistants and help the young realize that everything can be solved.
