      Good question! Different people show stress in different ways but if there is a general change in their mood, personality or behaviour this could be a sign they are stressed. It might sound cliched but the best thing you can do for them is probably just to be there if they need someone to talk to. If you are worried someone is under a serious amount of stress though you should talk to someone you trust about it like a teacher, as they might need more professional support.
