Anxiety in Teens is Rising: What's Going On?

Parents, teachers, and anyone who interacts with kids should take note: anxiety disorders are a real problem for today’s youth. They can lead to serious mental health problems like depression, substance use, and even suicide. They can interfere with a child's ability to learn in school and can also lead to physical health problems.

Learn more about the signs of anxiety and effective treatments. If you are worried that something you are seeing in your child could be related to anxiety, talk with your pediatrician.
