The first six-weeks is over for K-12, college students are facing mid-terms, and parents are juggling all the activities of a demanding fall season.  This is the time of year that we start to see warning signs of stress and anxiety in our students and families.  Academic struggles, irritability, performance pressure, withdrawal or indifference are just a few of the signs that a student or family member might be feeling overwhelmed. Be sure to find time to talk with supportive love ones and engage in rejuvenating activities to recharge after difficulty weeks. If the stress doesn’t resolve easily, just a few counseling sessions can put you back on the path to health and prevent more difficult problems.
