Welcome to Anchors Project!
What is Anchors Project?
Similarly to how kids learn about dental hygiene, early intervention and prevention can help promote proactive coping for handling strong emotions. Researchers at the Kansas City Center for Anxiety Treatment, P.A. (KCCAT) and Virtually Better, Inc. are examining ways of delivering family education and self-help tools for improving abilities to respond to common worries, fears, and other emotional health features in childhood, possibly reducing later needs of professionally delivered therapies..

Click the following link to start the screening process:
This process takes 20 minutes or less. You will need your child available for about 5-10 minutes to answer some questions with your help.
If you are eligible, you will then select an appointment time to do a brief “getting started” phone call with a research team member to answer any of your questions before deciding to move forward.
If you want to talk to a member of the research team before the screening process, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 913.956.6210
