Children and young people with signs of anxiety or depression
In the films below, you can get good advice on what you as a parent can do to help prevent symptoms of anxiety and depression in your child – you can actually do a lot. The films are aimed at parents of children with possible and early mild symptoms of anxiety or depression. The films do not tell how to treat severe anxiety and depression – but they give good advice on how to help prevent it.
It is important for both parents, teachers, pedagogues, etc. to be aware of whether the symptoms are due to a normal reaction to stress that can perhaps be remedied.
Below the films, you can read more about who to contact for further help.
