A free, evidence-based program that has been shown to help prevent and treat anxiety in young people aged between eight and 17 is now available online.
The BRAVE program, which has been trialed and evaluated over the last 13 years, is an online self-help course that allows young people and their parents to seek support for anxiety in the comfort of their own homes.
The program, which uses Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) techniques, includes up to 10 sessions for children or young people. Parents can also take part in a separate program to learn ways to help their children manage anxiety and participants can come back at any time for refreshers.
