Anxiety and Depression:

Whatever the reasons, a large number of children and adolescents report struggling with anxiety and depression. The research points to exercise, diet and meta cognition as the effective approaches to reduce these. Nathan will break this down into easy to understand language and share the techniques being used to teach teenagers and younger children how to manage their own stress, anxiety and depression. This involves learning about the human stress response system, the way the brain works, and the changes taking place in the brain during these years.
