What is social anxiety disorder?

In today's world, where a lot is happening on the internet and social media, most young people find it important "to keep up". Often they tend to present a perfect life. Partly because of this, many young people increasingly tend to ensure that everyone thinks positively about them. Teenagers and young adults with a social fear are afraid that everyone has a negative image of them. Because of this form of anxiety disorder, they try to do everything 100% right and are often afraid to meet someone, make phone calls, speak in public or do other things outside of their houses. These fears can be triggered by perceived or actual scrutiny from others.

How we treat social anxiety

At Yes We Can Youth Clinics we help young people to overcome their fears. We learn them how to be able to live and function in society in a pleasant way again. We help young people with fears to slowly break down the wall they have built and rebuild the positive feeling. Yes We Can Youth Clinics strives to reduce any medication that the teenager or young adult already receives to zero or as little as possible during the treatment.
