Anxiety in Young People & how the Youth Work Sector can support Youth Mental Health

October 10 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm IST

Description

On this World Mental Health Day, NYCI’s National Youth Health Programme are delighted to host a webinar on ‘Anxiety in Young People & how the Youth Work Sector can support Youth Mental Health’. 

 

From our conversations with youth workers and those working in the youth work sector, there is an increase in mental health issues for young people, such as anxiety. However, there is a query of concern from the sector in terms of capacity to help young people differentiate between day-to-day nerves & apprehensions that we all experience to an anxiety disorder.  

According to the HSE, Anxiety is an uncomfortable feeling of fear or stress. It is a common feeling that everyone experiences at some stage. What makes one person anxious, might not make another person feel the same. However, Anxiety can become a problem if it: 

  • gets in the way of your normal day-to-day activities 
  • carries on for more than a couple of weeks 

There are different levels of anxiety that young people (and adults) may experience. With this seminar, we want to  

  • explore the levels of anxiety 
  • how the effects of anxiety can impact young people 
  • what the youth work sector can do to support youth mental health.
