Anxiety in Children
Anxiety disorders are one of the most common mental health problems identified in children. Estimates of the rates of prevalence vary greatly from 8% to 27% lifetime prevalence by age 18.
Chronic anxiety disorders are associated with increased risk of other serious mental health problems in later life. Therefore, early identification and treatment is key.

This short film features real life accounts of Depression experienced by young people. Through their words we see the importance of early intervention by parents and teachers.
A child with depression can experience problems not just with how they feel, but also how they behave. Depression in children is treatable, but often young people are not recognised as being depressed so they don’t get the right help.
Nip in the Bud strongly believes that early intervention and support for children ensures far better outcomes.
