Anxiety is the most common mental health problem in children, affecting as many as 1 in 8 between the ages of 9 and 17. Anxiety has many faces. For some children, it is a difficulty separating from parents. Others struggle with social anxiety. Many have a generalized form of anxiety that is ever-present. Still others suffer from obsessive-compulsive difficulties.
The good news is that anxiety is very treatable, with success rates as high as 80%. The most proven effective approach to anxiety treatment is cognitive-behavioral therapy. The sooner children with anxiety are identified and treated, the sooner they can get back on track with the business of growing up, learning and being happy. Acting early can prevent a life of trials and tribulations for anxious children and help them take back their childhoods.
