With 6.8 million Americans currently struggling with Generalized Anxiety Disorder, 6 million Americans with Panic Disorder, 15 million Americans with Social Anxiety Disorder, and 19 million Americans with Specific Phobia Disorder, anxiety is not going away any time soon. Anxiety increased from 5.12% in 2008 to 6.68% in 2018 among adult Americans. Stratification by age revealed the most notable increase from 7.97% to 14.66% among respondents 18–25 years old, which was a more rapid increase than among 26–34 and 35–49 year olds . Since the start of the pandemic, the National Alliance on Mental Illness has heard from many young adults experiencing anxiety and depression, which the organization attributes partly to social isolation. To help support our youth, this training will explore what anxiety is, how to identify the symptoms of anxiety and provide strategies to support our teens during these unprecedented times.
By the end of the training the learner will be able to:
• Provide an overview of anxiety disorders
• Explore the physiology behind anxiety disorders
• Identify the impact COVID-19 is having on today’s youth
• Discuss treatment options being used today
