Helping SAD Students: Stressed, Anxious, and Depressed

Now here’s a cheery topic, –not!

But if you are working with students, one of your goals is to help the growing number  with anxiety.

Recent studies show that anxiety is increasing for students especially females. A new study looked at 19 other studies conducted across 12 countries. It found “an increase in anxiety and depression in teenagers across Northern Europe, the UK and China. The number of older adolescent girls suffering from mental health problems was double that of boys.” Similar studies in the US and Canada show that this is the most stressed generation since the 1930’s!

Why is this happening and what can we do about it!?
