How Will You Help Your Children Overcome Test Anxiety?
There are many children who perform above average in their academic surroundings until they’re faced with a test and everything that was once embedded in their memory melts away before they can even write their name down.

Here at Wellspring Behavioral Health, we can provide the assessments you need to determine the best ways to help your students succeed academically.
If you think your child might need help with stress and anxiety, whether it is induced by an academic setting or other factors, please contact us. If you’d like to know more about how test anxiety can affect children, the following article provides insight for problems like Math Anxiety.
More Than Just Your Mind: How Stress Can Harm Your Body
At times, we find ourselves in a constant battle with stress. We worry about managing projects at work, about our families, about money and everything else in between. More often than not, we subconsciously succumb to the stress that creeps up on us.
Headaches and fatigue are often stress-induced, but what many people don’t realize is the effect stress can physically have on their body. Chronic painful conditions and increased difficulty in breathing are only some of physical effects stress can have on the body and these effects can even result in stress-related illnesses.
If you’re feeling stressed-out or filled with anxiety, consider a medical assessment to prevent health- and stress-related problems down the road.
It’s important to speak to someone about stress before you experience chronic pain or stress-related illness. This article from the American Psychological Association reveals the harmful effects stress can have on both the mind and body.
