American teens are facing a stress crisis. Public health officials report a surge in the number of young people seeking help for anxiety. The course addresses this crisis by guiding high school students to an understanding of the latest scientific research about how chronic stress affects the body. The course also introduces students to Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) to help them develop strategies for managing stress and restoring health and balance.
