You’ve noticed some changes in your teen.
One day he or she is feeling sad and hopeless, and the next day,
worried, afraid, and unsettled.

What do you do? 

Many parents worry when their child starts acting moody or exhibiting negative behavior. And, while it is normal for kids to be worried or sad from time to time, it is important to differentiate between what is normal and what could be a sign of a deeper problem.

While it’s normal to have ups and downs, approximately 1 in 8 children experience moderate to extreme anxiety and 20% experience depression. 

When anxiety or depression affect kids and families, many are left feeling:

● lack of understanding
● an increase in arguing and frustration
● withdrawal and isolation
● fear and worry
● an increase in substance use or self-harming behaviors
● grief
● discontent

Anxiety and depression are like the opposite sides of the same coin.

As a therapist, over 75% of the families I work with are experiencing some level of anxiety or depression. Often the two go hand in hand.
