Treatment for anxiety in teens that works

Teen anxiety is the second most common mental health disorder in U.S. teens

Teenage anxiety is a common and serious issue in the United States. It is estimated that about 25% of adolescents experience an anxiety disorder at some point during their teenage years. Left untreated, anxiety can interfere with a teenager’s ability to function at home, school, and in social situations, and can lead to other mental health problems such as depression. It is important that teenagers with anxiety receive appropriate treatment in order to help them manage their symptoms and live fulfilling lives.
