Anxiety is a normal emotion – it’s one of our body’s natural reactions to stress.
For young people, some level of anxiety is normal as they grow up and learn to navigate the world.
However, it’s important that they have the tools to manage feelings of anxiety, and can tell the difference between normal emotions and more severe anxiety which is interfering with their everyday life.
The 'Let’s talk about anxiety' animation, and accompanying resources for school staff, will help students aged 11 to 13 to normalise, understand and manage anxious feelings.
