Preventing Childhood Anxiety and Depression [3:28]


This great video goes over some of the causes, big and small, of anxiety for kids.  Way too often these causes and symptoms go unnoticed and snowball.  Neutrino, our helpful alien narrator, introduces the various causes and ways we can prevent the start of serious depression.  Most importantly we need to shift our perspective from treating the disease of depression to being attentive and preventing it from starting in the first place.
