Anxiety Program…

The Center for Children and Youth provides comprehensive evaluations and treatment for children and adolescent ages 4-18, who are experiencing unusual or excessive anxiety.

Anxiety disorders are among the most common illness in America. About 13 percent of children between 9 and 17 years of age have an anxiety disorder.

According to Mental Health America, “All children experience some anxiety; this is normal and expected.  For example, when left along at a preschool for the first time, many children will show distress; a young child with his or her own room may develop a fear of the dark. Such anxiety becomes a problem when it interrupts a child’s normal activities, like attending school and making friends or sleeping. Persistent and intense anxiety that disrupts daily routine is a mental health problem that requires help.”

Signs of Anxiety include:

*Fear of separating from parents or significant others.

*Nighttime fears or unwillingness to sleep alone.

*School refusal

*Intense anxiety attacks or panics

*Fear and/or avoidance of specific animals, objects or situations

*Anticipatory anxiety and/or avoidance of social situations

*Performance anxiety, including fear of talking in class

*Repetitive, compulsive, ritualized behaviors

*Excessive worrying and ruminating (sometimes accompanied by physical complaints)

*Anxiety in the aftermath of traumatic events

The Anxiety Program offers a full spectrum of psycho-therapeutic treatments, which includes:

*Comprehensive Diagnostic Evalution

*Individual, Family and Group Therapy

*Medication Evaluation and Management

The Anxiety Program is lead by a team of Certified Child and Adolescent Psychiatrists, Advanced Practice Nurses, Clinical psychologists and Clinical Social Workers.
