May 22, 2015

Approximately 10% to 20% of children have anxiety disorders, which can be significantly impairing and lead to comorbid mood or substance use disorders, according to Anne Marie Albano, PhD, of Columbia University and New York-Presbyterian Hospital. Albano presented on adolescent anxiety during the transition to adulthood at the American Psychiatric Association Annual Meeting.
