With humour and heart, these Caretoons from Anxiety Canada normalize anxiety in an entertaining way and encourage youth to talk to someone they trust, such as a parent, teacher, or friend. Watching the characters in these series deal with their own anxieties gives kids situations and feelings they can relate to and talk about. They let children and teens know that talking about their anxieties is okay and can make them feel less alone.

Questions you can ask youth after watching Caretoons include:
- Do you sometimes experience worry, sadness, or anxiety?
- Does anxiety ever stop you from doing the things you want to do?
- Do you worry about being separated from the people you love?
- Who is someone you trust that you could talk to about your feelings?
