Learning to cope with anxiety and depression on an individual level is a challenge, and learning to help a child cope can be even harder.

How can parents distinguish nerves and sadness from anxiety and depression? Are there right and wrong ways for parents to react when they recognize those things in their children? Carol F. McConkie, first counselor in the Young Women General Presidency, and Heather Nelson, a licensed clinical social worker, share personal stories and expert insights to help answer these questions in this episode of Gospel Solutions for Families.
