FRIENDS for Life - FRIENDS for Youth

Barrett, 2005

FRIENDS for Youth External Link is an early intervention that teaches young people how to cope with and manage anxiety. It promotes important self-development concepts such as self-esteem, problem-solving, self-expression, and building positive relationships with peers.

FRIENDS for Youth is about early intervention for childhood anxiety and depression. It is aimed at preventing the development of serious mental disorders, emotional distress, and impairment in social functioning, by teaching children and young people how to cope with and manage anxiety both now and in later life.

FRIENDS for Youth also promotes important self-development concepts such as self-esteem, problem-solving, self-expression, and building positive relationships with peers and adults.
