Children suffering from an anxiety disorder are often dealing with a number of issues that impact their daily life, such as having trouble in school, refusing to sleep alone, or even displaying behavioral problems.
As a parent, getting help for your anxious teenager is a top priority. To help him or her live a happy, healthy life, you first have to open the lines of communication with your teen, discuss the need for professional help, and find a psychologist or other qualified mental health professional you both like.
For teenagers especially, it’s important to involve them in the process of getting professional help, starting with the initial conversation about why therapy might be necessary.
