More than one in eight children will be diagnosed with an anxiety or mood disorder. The most common mental illnesses, these are highly treatable with early diagnosis and intervention. Join colleagues and experts to discuss anxiety disorders and depression in children, adolescents, and teens.

The members of an expert panel will address what’s normal and what’s an anxiety disorder; identify early warning signs; and focus on social anxiety disorder, a serious often-overlooked disorder. They will provide tips for motivating and engaging youth and updates on CBT (cognitive-behavioral therapy) and look at ways to prevent these disorders. A Q&A session will follow the discussion.
