Elevated stress and anxiety often presents a daily challenge for teenagers, compounding the many demands that high school students face. Moreover, up to 20% of high school students meet criteria for an anxiety disorder, making anxiety disorders the most common class of mental health concern affecting young people. 41% of LS students reported that life was very stressful, letting us see this is an issue that hits very close to home. Psychologists from McClean Hospital specializing in the research and evidence-based treatments of anxiety disorders in youth will discuss ways in which anxiety and stress may present in high school students, and will provide instruction in broad-based coping strategies to help manage stress. This seminar will also address how to differentiate normative anxiety from more impairing anxiety disorders, and will highlight treatment strategies and resources for those students and families struggling with elevated anxiety. There will be ample opportunity for questions after the presentation.
Please join us at 7:30 in the LS Lecture Hall, and feel free to bring your students along with you. You can register for the event here. Space is limited.
