Understanding Teenage Anxiety

Our organisation was established in response to the surge of Irish adolescents experiencing anxiety, and the challenges that parents face when seeking advice, guidance and reliable professional mental health assessment and care for their teenagers.

Longitudinal studies carried out at UCD suggest that, today in Ireland, 1/3 of teenagers are experiencing anxiety which is impacting their day-to-day lives. That’s a staggering 300% increase over the past decade.

Rest assured, all our professionals have achieved the highest academic qualifications in their respective fields, are members of creditable professional bodies, and strictly adhere to the highest standards of practice in Ireland.

Our team comprises of Clinical Psychologists, Psychotherapists, Counsellors, Occupational Therapists, and Speech & Language Therapists who are all trained in the most up-to-date evidence based interventions, such as CBT.

“When my daughter’s anxiety started getting worse, finding qualified professional help was a minefield! A professional at PrimaHealth took the time to listen to me,  understand my daughter’s difficulties, explain the different mental health professionals to me, and recommend a qualified clinician suitable for my daughter and her mental health issues.

Joy, our occupational therapist at PrimaHealth, worked wonders with my teenage daughter. Her tailored approach and genuine connection made all the difference. My child regained confidence and resilience, for which we’re immensely grateful. Joy and PrimaHealth have been a lifeline for our family navigating adolescent challenges. Highly recommend!”
