“Help! My teen is stressed, anxious and/or showing OCD tendencies.”
Anxiety disorders are the most common mental health disorders of adolescence. Different kinds of anxiety affect young people at different times in development.
- Nearly one in three adolescents (31.9%) will meet criteria for an anxiety disorder by the age of 18.
Join us on December 9th at 5:30pm at Doorways to learn more about tools and strategies to support your teen during this time in their life.
