Great Youth Wellbeing: Should I join a gang?

Should I join a gang?

Many young people do not feel that they belong to anything. Also, they are looking for meaning. Young people are often drawn to gangs because they believe in the things offered. You will be disappointed; this false promise can lead to well-being issues. Understanding what makes you want to be involved in a gang and the risks is vital.

Mind Emotional Nurturing

Joining a gang never leads to anything positive. Instead, ask yourself why you want to join a gang and explore alternatives. Example: If your reason for wanting to join a gang is to find belonging, then start questioning your thinking. Ask yourself what other ways you could experience belonging that offer only positive outcomes for your life.
