According to a 2017 survey taken of college counseling centers by Inside Higher Ed, “over the last decade, anxiety has overtaken depression as the most common reason college students seek counseling services. Not only that, but there has been “a doubling of hospital admissions for suicidal teenagers over the last 10 years.”
OUR expert on this subject, for this episode, is Haylee Bladen. Haylee agrees that there is a definite rise, not only in teens being diagnosed with anxiety, but teens having clinical anxiety. She has created “Whole Kids Emotional Wellness”, a counseling center where she, her husband, and a host of other counselors provide counseling and life skills for teens, schools, and much more.
As a parent of multiple teens whose emotional stability is, at times, all over the map, what can I do to help my teens to deal with the anxiety they may feel? Haylee talked us through 5 Anxiety Busting Tips that we can teach our kids to help them deal with anxious feelings that are bound to rear their ugly head.
