NATSAP Program Member Featured on the Today Show

Newport Academy, a NATSAP program member, recently had a chance to sit with Maria Shriver and discuss anxiety in teenagers:

High school students at the Newport Academy, a behavioral treatment center, revealed what it was like to be overwhelmed by the stress they felt from parents, friends, and school.

“I would always have trouble breathing when I was feeling anxious,” said 15-year-old Annamarie, who was a straight-A student.

“It’s a lot of fleeting thoughts in my head, a lot of fear, but I don’t really know what I’m afraid of,” recalled 17-year-old Jake, a popular athlete.

“I didn’t see any other people in my life struggling with anxiety, so I constantly felt like there was something wrong with me,” Ariana said.
