Are you worried about your child's anxiety? Or has your child been diagnosed with anxiety, and you need to know what to do next? YoungMinds is here to help and support you.
We've put together information about the symptoms, diagnosis and treatment of anxiety, especially for parents and carers, with lots of links to organisations who can help. We're also here to listen. If you want to talk to someone in confidence about your worries, you can contact the YoungMinds Parents' Helpline for free. You can call, email or chat to us online – whatever suits you best.
Some children and young people worry more than others, and have greater difficulty coping with the challenges of growing up.
Anxiety and phobias can be treated with talking therapies including counselling, psychotherapy, and sometimes medication.
