The UCLA Child Anxiety Resilience Education and Support (CARES) Center is an innovative center dedicated to supporting the development of resilient, emotionally healthy children. The Center is also focused on training, research, and community outreach to help clinicians, researchers, school staff, and parents recognize the early signs of childhood anxiety and support families in accessing resources to build family strengths and resilience.

Led by members of UCLA’s world-renowned mental health programs, the UCLA CARES Center is developing new and improved strategies to help children, parents, clinicians, and community members better engage with one another to reduce the burden of childhood anxiety.
