Eastridge Counseling Center Presents Helping Teens Manage Anxiety Live Stream Event
Join the Eastridge High School Counseling Staff and Dr. James Wallace, in the fourth installment of Partnering with Families to Support Teens virtual informational session: Helping Teens Manage Anxiety.
According to the National Institutes of Health, nearly 1 in 3 of all adolescents ages 13 to 18 will experience anxiety. Chronic anxiety can lead to serious mental health problems ― depression, substance use, and even suicide. It can interfere with the ability to focus and learn causing school problems that can have lifelong impact. It can also lead to physical problems, such as headaches, chronic pain, digestive problems, and later heart disease. In this session, Dr. James Wallace of URMC's Department of Psychiatry and Pedicatrics: Child and Adolescent, will explain what is causing the rise in anxiety in young people and describe how they can be supported.
