Nemours® KidsHealth® commissioned The Harris Poll to conduct the 2023 What’s Worrying America’s Kids survey to gain insight into the worries of children, where they go for help and how they cope.
Recent findings from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) show a decline in many aspects of teens’ mental health and point to a larger youth mental health crisis. Nemours KidsHealth set out to understand what children worry about during the pre-teen years.
Understanding what children worry about most often offers an opportunity for parents and caregivers. They can learn more about their children’s concerns and gain insight into how to help them when worries become too frequent or intense.
