Did you know that 1 in 10 children and young people experience an anxiety condition that impacts their daily life? As carers, you will likely be familiar with trauma responses and anxiety that can arise for some children and young people around family contact, school, social environments or other situations on a daily basis. How much do you know about that anxiety and how to support those in your care?
