The Expert Parents Guide to Childhood Anxiety provides parents and teachers with a straightforward structure that is simple to use when explaining what anxiety is to children, how to recognise positive and negative feelings, and advice on handling these emotions.

It’s estimated that 1 in 10 young people across Ireland suffers from mental health issues. If left unaddressed these issues often have a significant impact on school performance, self-esteem and wellbeing, as well as the desire to attend school.

Anxiety is often comorbid with other mental health problems such as depression, therefore recognising anxiety early and getting children the help they need is often the best preventative measures for mental health difficulties that develop later. 

Let’s work together to look after our children’s mental health and help them deal with any anxiety they may be experiencing.
