Back-to-school and mental health

Change is hard for most of us because as humans we are creatures of habit. Change can be even harder for those of us with underlying disorders such as ADHD or anxiety. Ask any teacher, the transition to school every year is a struggle. With the right support, children and adolescents can learn to transition seamlessly.
