What can teens do to prevent progression of daily worry to anxiety? is a global online community where teenagers can share stories, prioritize well-being, and find information on how to handle stress and crisis. TeenzTalk was founded by an SF Bay Area teen Nadia G. The site includes a place for teens to share their stories on video, interviews with professionals, and campaigns for mental health, positive messages, and to #SpeakMindfully. Nadia recently interviewed Dr. Dan Peters of Summit Center for the "Hear from the Experts" section about how teens can cope with anxiety and worry.
Dr. Dan's videos address questions including:
- What can teens do to prevent progression of daily worry to anxiety?
- How can teens best cope with anxiety or worry?
- How can teens nurture their creative potential & learn to build resilience?
- What does it mean to be "gifted" or "twice exceptional"?
