approximately 7% of children worldwide deal with social anxiety, making it one of the most common mental health challenges among young people.

By addressing these challenges early and providing support and resources for children and families, we can help ensure a brighter and more connected future.

  • Long-term risk of developing mental health issues, such as anxiety and depression.

Physical Health:

  • Greater susceptibility to chronic health conditions like heart disease and obesity.
  • Disrupted sleep patterns and weakened immune system, leading to more frequent illnesses.
  • Fatigue and lack of energy, hindering their ability to engage in daily activities and enjoy life fully.

Social and Relationship Dynamics:
