Abstract

As adolescents face new challenges, the prevalence of stress, anxiety, and depression is growing. This chapter presents research on stress, anxiety, and depression as it relates to brain development and treatment options. While prescription medication is a common treatment option, there is concern over use with the development of the adolescent brain and side effects. In addition to, or in place of, medication, other treatment options presented in this chapter include psychotherapy, biofeedback, mindfulness, diet, exercise, and social media use. With advances in technology and increased use among adolescents, the chapter will present new treatment options that are available through apps and social media.
