According to the NHS, as of 2021, 17% (1 in 6) 6 to 16 year olds experience one or more mental disorders.
Anxiety and uncertainty are a normal part of growing up as children and young people face experiences and challenges that they may not have come across before. However, when these feelings of worry or stress start to creep into the everyday or stop your child from engaging in activities that they used to enjoy, then this may be a sign that they are experiencing anxiety and could use a little extra support.
Please note: Anxiety UK does not provide 1-1 therapy to children or young people under the age of 18.
Our ‘Helping your Child’ Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) based programme is designed to give parents the skills needed to support their child and is suitable for children aged from 5 to 12.
