About the Youth Anxiety Center

A Brighter Future

The Youth Anxiety Center at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital focuses on anxiety disorders in teens and young adults between the ages of 16 and 28. At the center, leading researchers and doctors from Weill Cornell and Columbia University work collaboratively, using a multi-pronged approach to understand the root causes of anxiety and improve existing treatments.

In the PSA video about the Youth Anxiety Center, Lena Dunham talks about her struggle with obsessive compulsive disorder; Anna Wintour emphasizes how important it is that anxiety is finally being talked about; Vera Wang points out that we all need tools to help us cope with our lives; Amber Valletta tells parents not to be afraid to seek help for their child.
