Feeling unsatisfied by an activity, or uninterested in it, can lead to boredom. Boredom may occur when you feel energetic but have nowhere to direct your energy. It may also occur when you have difficulty focusing on a task. Boredom is a common complaint among children and adolescents. Working with folks who have experienced boredom throughout the years, several of them have reported that feeling bored have lead them to explore with mind-altering chemicals. 

At the Utah Pride Center’s Community Counseling, we are here to assist you.
