Ever wonder where the line is between normal anxiety and anxiety that’s a problem? Dan Campbell LCSW and Rich Long, Ed.D., Trinity Mental Health Wellness Team members, talk about anxiety – especially how it touches adults and parents -for a 40-minute podcast.   They answer questions raised after the screening of the documentary, “Angst,” including ideas on how to cope with anxiety and when to seek assistance.  This is one in a series on the topic but is “free-standing” as one may listen in any order.
