Got Stress? Text it Out! (Chiara de Blasio)

New York City Department of Health

As daughter of NYC’s mayor, Chiara de Blasio lives a very different life than most her age. But she can relate to the emotional distress that leaves many teens feeling isolated. Having been there herself, Chiara worked with DCF to tell teens that help is just a text away.
