A new survey says teenagers are highly stressed out and if they don't get it under control, it could lead to an unhealthy adulthood.

The findings by the American Psychological Association reveal high stress levels in teens occur more during the school year.

They are not sleeping well and try to cope by eating junk food or skipping meals.

They are also doing the opposite of proven stress relievers like watching TV and playing video games.
