Welcome to our Advice Column!
The advice column is a space for the readers of ATP to ask questions. These can pertain to the months topic, relate back to their personal lives, or be lighthearted and fun! Their questions are sent to Hayden and Ella, dedicated columnists who reply to questions with their own insight and aim to provide answers or reassurance.
Hayden is one of the Advice Columnists for A Teen’s Perspective. Hayden’s job is to receive messages from teens from all walks of life with questions, concerns or struggles and help brainstorm solutions or mechanisms that can help. Hayden is well versed in problem solving and rationalization, with a great passion for psychology and understanding the human psyche. Hayden has been involved in multiple clubs, groups and organizers in his school, and is currently achieving his Specialist High Skills Major in Arts and Culture. Hayden enjoys performing, singing, and skiing in his spare time, as well as hanging out and making music with his friends. Hayden believes that all problems, no matter how small, should be given the attention and resources needed to fix them. He also wants to focus on erasing the stigma around men and their mental health, giving men a chance to voice their problems without fear of judgement A Teen Perspective was incredibly inspiring to Hayden, and he jumped at the opportunity to join a team so focused on the teen experience. He hopes the team continues their mission and goes farther than they could ever dream.
