Helping Adolescents With Anxiety
This webinar is hosted by McLean Hospital
Anxiety is something we all have, but too much anxiety has the potential to impact every part of a young person’s life, including their physical health, emotional well-being, and social habits. When a teen is overly anxious, they can feel isolated and misunderstood—and may have a difficult time opening up about their feelings.
Are the symptoms of anxiety the same in kids and teens as they are in adults? How can we talk to adolescents about anxiousness? And is it ever too late to seek help for anxiety?
In this previously recorded session, Dr. Krompinger provides tips to talk with teens about anxiety, explains the differences between types of anxiety, and answers questions about addressing stigma around the most common mental health disorder.
