Anxiety becoming a real issue among teens

Anxiety becoming a real issue among teens


There is a growing number of teens facing severe anxiety but there is also a way parents can help.

Many studies cite academic pressures to succeed, social media acceptance and self-esteem among the top triggers.

Experts also say the rise in teen anxiety cases may really be a reflection of more awareness and acceptance of the condition.

There's medication and even an app that can help. It's called "Mindshift" and helps with breathing and distraction.
