How To Handle Teen Anxiety on a Mission Trip

Mission trips provide adventure and an opportunity to get a break from life’s normal routines and scenery. Many students welcome this change and can easily leave behind things that might distract or burden them from fully embracing the trip, others can’t help but carry those things with them. Students coming from stressful, unstable or disruptive home environments cannot simply leave thoughts of their reality behind. Similarly, students who struggle with mental health bring those struggles with them, adding an element of unpredictability to their experience.

What does this mean for youth leaders on a mission trip? This guidebook is designed to answer that question by drawing from the expertise of TreeHouse and YouthWorks’ 25+ years of experience hosting teenagers at our mission sites.
