Anxiety is one of the most common mental health issues experienced by children & young people and its a very normal experience, particularly for young people entering into adolescence who are going through significant changes both physically and psychologically.
But when does this normal experience become something we need to be concerned about? How can we tell what’s “normal” and when we need to get help?

· The Experience of clinical anxiety and how it is diagnosed
· Causes of Anxiety
