Helping Children and Teens With Anxiety Disorders and Depression

Understanding New Research and Treatment

When anxiety takes over, it interferes with your child’s ability to cope with fear, worry, and depression — and treatment is necessary.

Early intervention is critical. Waiting for your child to mature or grow out of these behaviors may not be the right approach. In some cases children may develop chronic anxiety and depression, which is often associated with substance abuse and other high-risk behaviors.

Recent scientific advances have led to effective treatments. ADAA held a public education session in April 2012, where experts discussed new research about our understanding of anxiety disorders and depression in children, including what’s new in treatment.
