Dr. Dale Wisely will speak about understanding anxiety among youth on January 31 at 11 am in the youth room. Anxiety seems to be rising among our youth. Of course, all children go through periods of being fearful. But increasing numbers of young people seem to be experiencing clinical anxiety. It is not only a source of suffering, but can also be an indicator of depression. In this talk, Dr. Wisely will help us understand how significant anxiety differs from the normal fears of youth. He will provide examples of ways we can help our anxious children and how to know when mental health care is warranted. Please stop at the school office to get a visitor’s pass before proceeding to the youth room. All are welcome.
