Anxiety disorders (AD) are among the most common types of mental health disorders affecting adolescents in the United States today. The purpose of this paper is to examine types of school-based interventions implemented to support secondary students with AD and the effectiveness of these interventions. In this starred paper literature review, I discuss the outcomes and effectiveness of school-based interventions that target students’ anxiety. Both group and individual cognitive-behavioral therapies (CBT) and other school-based mental health (SBMH) interventions are examined. The literature review includes three intervention categories: Skills for Academic and Social Success (SASS) studies, Creating Opportunities for Personal Empowerment (COPE) studies, and other SBMH interventions. This paper also includes my conclusions, recommendations for future research, and implications for current practice.
