Recognizing Anxiety in Youth
September 9, 2020

The Great Lakes MHTTC School-based Supplement hosted this webinar focused on helping educators and families recognize signs of anxiety in youth. As we continue to wade through these changing and challenging times, our students are also facing the uncertainty of what the upcoming school year brings. Now, more than ever it is important that we are attuned to our students' mental health needs. Topics covered include:

  • How ongoing stress can cause health problems
  • Brain development and the impact of stress in teens
  • Common anxiety disorders in youth, including signs and symptoms
  • Self-help strategies for depression and anxiety
  • How to encourage professional help
