The most common health problem in children, and how to treat it

In honour of Mental Health Month in New South Wales, we continue to share information to help remove the stigma associated with mental health and anxiety.

Last week, Professor Jennie Hudson, Director of the Macquarie University Centre for Emotional Health, gave tips for adults on how to manage stress.

This week on the Pioneering Minds podcast, she discusses the genetic markers that indicate anxiety in children and the most effective ways that parents can help their children avoid and overcome anxiety and depression.

“In the past anxiety has been underdiagnosed and it’s still underdiagnosed. It’s the most common health problem that children experience,” Jennie says.

Register for Jennie Hudson’s presentation ‘Happy People? Improving our Children’s Emotional Health’ as part of the Macquarie Minds Showcase.
