NICK NEWS WITH LINDA ELLERBEE LISTENS TO CONCERNED KIDS ON "WORRIED SICK: LIVING WITH ANXIETY," PREMIERING TUESDAY, SEPT. 24, AT 8:00 (ET/PT) ON NICKELODEON

NEW YORK - Sept. 17, 2013 - Nick News with Linda Ellerbee hears from kids consumed by anxiety in the new half-hour special, "Worried Sick: Living With Anxiety," premiering on Tuesday, Sept. 24, at 8 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon. In the special, kids around the country share their stories of dealing with and managing their anxiety disorders.

"In an ever-more complicated world, more and more kids are feeling more and more anxious - yet anxiety disorders among kids are rarely taken seriously, even though they can lead to overeating, smoking, depression or drug use," says Ellerbee.

Dan, 17, of Chicago, Ill. says it all started with a panic attack. "I just couldn't get the thought of the anxiety and panic and all the stuff that was going on out of my head. I felt like I was going insane."

Tobias, 14, of Louisville, Ky. says he's been worrying basically his entire life, but after his dad died his anxiety got worse. "I just pace around like, 'What's going on, what's going on, what's going on?' It feels scary."

Owen, 15, of Bellingham, Wash. worries so much about his grades he's had to stop going to school altogether. "I feel, like, really strongly about getting everything perfect. Like, if it's a test, I need to get 100% on it. If it's a paper, it needs to be, like, a perfect A."

Julianna, 15, of New York suffers from such extreme social anxiety disorder that she spent two months at a residential treatment center to learn to cope with it. "Facing your worst fears is terrifying. I felt that I was beyond help. Now I think I can get better. I know I can get better."

Nick News, produced by Lucky Duck Productions, is now in its 22nd year and is the longest-running kids' news show in television history. It has built its reputation on the respectful and direct way it speaks to kids about the important issues of the day. Over the years, Nick News has received more than 21 Emmy nominations and recently won its 10th Emmy Award for Forgotten But Not Gone: What You Still Need to Know about AIDS and You in the category of Outstanding Children's Program. Additional Emmy wins for outstanding children's programming include: Under the Influence: Kids of Alcoholics, The Face of Courage: Kids Living with Cancer (2010); Coming Home: When Parents Return from War (2009); The Untouchable Kids of India (2008); Private Worlds: Kids and Autism (2007); Never Again: From the Holocaust to the Sudan (2005); Faces of Hope: The Kids of Afghanistan (2002) and What Are You Staring At? (1998). In addition, in 1995, the entire series won the Emmy. In 2009, Nick News was honored with the Edward R. Murrow Award for best Network News Documentary for Coming Home: When Parents Return from War - the first-ever kids' television program to receive this prestigious award. Nick News has also received three Peabody Awards, including a personal award given to Ellerbee for explaining the impeachment of President Clinton to kids, as well as a Columbia duPont Award and more than a dozen Parents' Choice Awards.
