If depression came to the fore in the 1990s, it is anxiety that defines the emotional and cultural landscape of the 21st century. Anxiety disorders affect 32 percent of the more than 17 million children struggling with mental health disorders, making them the most common mental health disorders of childhood and adolescence. As we learn more about the effects of stress and how anxiety sets the stage for later social and emotional problems, it becomes clearer what we have to do: provide treatment to children with anxiety disorders, ideally before they become anxious adults.
