Recognizing and Managing Teen Anxiety

REGISTER TO WATCH ON DEMAND

Nearly one in three adolescents meet the criteria for an anxiety disorder by the age of 18. Sadly, 80% of youth diagnosed with anxiety are not getting the treatment they need. Caring adults can make a difference by learning to recognize the signs and intervening before anxiety takes over a teen’s life or leads to depression.

Teen Self-Injury: Working Toward Healthy Coping Skills

REGISTER TO WATCH ON DEMAND

Many adults recoil at the thought of self-injury, but it’s a fact among young people: approximately 18% of teens and upwards of 35% of college students report having self-injured in some way. And the connection with depression is strong, with between 40% and 70% of teens treated for self-injury having a depression diagnosis.

Self-injury is an unhealthy coping mechanism that can lead to an increased risk of suicide. Although this data is alarming, there is good news. Adults can intervene effectively by understanding the function of self-injury, recognizing the signs, and helping adolescents develop healthy coping mechanisms to manage their pain.
