Understanding Anxiety

Anxiety is the most prevalent mental illness in America, and has been increasing, particularly among our youth. Symptoms of anxiety are often difficult to recognize, and are easily mistaken for physical illnesses, manipulation, or laziness. Efforts to alleviate it often actually make the symptoms worse. This presentation, designed for those with limited clinical experience treating anxiety, will help nurses, counselors, and other school staff learn:
• The physiological processes involved in anxiety
• How to recognize anxiety symptoms among your students
• How best to support students struggling with anxiety, without exacerbating the symptoms.
• The importance of collaboration between the school and home to address this issue.
