Jali the Nervous New Boy - Generalised Anxiety Disorder
What is generalised anxiety disorder?
The story in this book is based on an anxiety disorder called generalised anxiety disorder.
Most children worry every now and again about school or friends or something or other. However, some children worry excessively about nearly everything.
They worry about what happened that day and what might happen tomorrow. They worry about negative social outcomes and negative physical outcomes. Their worry seems uncontrollable. They are often tense, watchful, restless, irritable and have difficulty concentrating.
