Friday, February 22nd
Dr. Abigail Schlesinger, Chief of  the Behavioral Science Division at UPMC Children's Hospital joined Wendy Bell and Marty to talk about anxiety and depression in children and teens.  Dr. Schlesinger said anxiety disorders are among the most common behavioral health concerns.  She added we don't need to be afraid of anxiety/stress/depression we just need to be aware and talk about it.  She suggests parents share with kids what causes them to struggle and what they do to cope with it.
