About the Event

Join Margo Thienemann, MD, Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist and Clinical Professor at Stanford's Children's Health, for an informative discussion about anxiety in children and teens.


Note: This is a standalone event, but highly recommended as a follow-up to our livestream screening of ANGST: Raising Awareness Around Anxiety, an IndieFlix Original documentary film. 

Today, anxiety is the most common mental health concern in children and teens, impacting approximately 1 in 3 American youth. Mental disorders are described as serious changes in the way children learn, behave, or handle their emotions (Source: CDC). 

For children aged 3-17 years with behavior problems, more than 1 in 3 also have anxiety (36.6%) and about 1 in 5 also have depression (20.3%) 

Parents, students, educators, clinicians, and community members welcome! Free admission. Virtual Zoom session and Q&A will be video recorded. 

The Parent Education Webinar Series is sponsored by Sequoia Healthcare District and Sequoia Union High School School District.
