Wildcat Pause: The Anxiety Issue

May 15, 2020

Anxiety, for many teenagers, has risen over the past months as school buildings closed and physical contact with friends disappeared. Even before the pandemic, anxiety was an all-too-common problem for high school students, and the Wildcat Pause was set to address it with a special issue scheduled to be distributed to SWR students during the March 16th school day. It didn't happen. Nonetheless, the information may be needed more now than ever before. If you have concerns about rising anxiety levels, please contact SWR's psychologist, Dr. D'Elena, or social worker, Mrs. Anci. You have probably seen them around the school building; their pictures are on page 6. Dr. D'Elena and Mrs. Anci are here for you. To contact Dr. D'Elena, email him at [email protected] To contact Mrs. Anci, email her at [email protected]
