How "High Functioning Anxiety" Impacts Teens - Article
While anxiety is a serious issue for many teens, some may not get treatment or even a diagnosis for it when they should because they have high-functioning anxiety, which can go unnoticed.

This article tells you what you need to know about high-functioning anxiety in teenagers, including its tie to depression and how you can help.
