Ask An Expert: How Can I Turn Anxiety into My Superpower? 3/16/23

We are aware of the immense struggles around mental health issues that a lot of teens and adults are dealing with. Often mental health symptoms such as anxiety and depression get in the way of learning and of participating fully in life. We want to coach teens and adults in helping them understand that these symptoms are natural reactions to stress and overwhelm and that there are ways in channeling this energy in productive ways. If you are curious to understand the neuroscience of anxiety more and want to learn ways to support kids, teen and/or yourself, then this event is for you.
