About Anxiety & Teens
Anxiety disorders are the most common mental health challenge in the U.S., affecting one-quarter of teenagers. About 80% of children and teenagers with anxiety do not get treated, and 20% will experience depression before graduating from high school. It’s time to open up a dialogue among families, school administration, and clinical experts and to raise awareness and sensitivity to this pervasive issue.
