As many as a fourth of all teenagers are suffering from crippling anxiety disorders. Claire Caviness, 15, has been at E-Nini-Hassee, an Eckerd Kids program, for nearly eight months, to treat her severe anxiety disorder. She uses no technology because it’s not allowed at the camp. It’s just her, her fellow campers and her thoughts.
Claire is leaving E-Nini-Hassee at the end of May and says now, she’s confident she can go back to school a changed person who can cope with anxiety.
“I’m okay and I’m good enough, like being who I am,” she said.
