关于焦虑 & 抑郁症
In the US, 1 in 8 children has an anxiety disorder and 9.7%的年轻人患有重度抑郁症. The National Institute of Mental Health defines suicide as a major public health concern and it is the second leading cause of death among 10-34 year-olds in the US. Recent research reveals that even preschool children can experience anxiety or depression.
While it’s difficult to pinpoint a single cause, anxiety and depression can be rooted in biology, genetics and personality and also complicated by environmental factors. 抑郁症 and suicidality often co-occur. Suicidality is one possible symptom of depression. 焦虑 and depression are also often linked to 注意力缺陷多动症, 学习的差异 or 自闭症.

治疗焦虑的CHC专家 & 抑郁症
2020 was — to borrow a phrase from a popular kid’s book — a terrible, 可怕的, 没有好, 非常糟糕的一年. And for parents, one of the year’s hardest jobs was trying to explain current events to young kids.
Our lives have been turned upside down by a global pandemic. Many of us find the current political and social climate to be a significant source of stress as well. If you’re feeling anxious and overwhelmed, you’re not alone.
