2018 Children’s Mental Health Report

A look at how widespread anxiety disorders are, how they develop, and the risks of untreated anxiety.

About the Report

Regular anxiety becomes a disorder when young people have out-of-proportion responses to things most of us cope with easily.

  • In the past 10 years, there has been increasing recognition of anxiety in young people by health care providers, including a 17% increase in anxiety disorder diagnosis.
  • Yet anxiety symptoms are minimized or ignored. As little as 1% of youth with anxiety seek treatment in the year symptoms begin.
  • At some point, anxiety affects 30% of children and adolescents, yet 80% never get help.
  • Untreated anxiety disorders are linked to depression, school failure and a two-fold increase in risk for substance use disorder.
