Anxiety and depression occurring during childhood and adolescence are common and costly. While early‐emerging anxiety and depression can arise through a complex interplay of ‘distal’ factors such as genetic and environmental influences, temperamental characteristics and brain circuitry, the more proximal mechanisms that transfer risks on symptoms are poorly delineated. Information‐processing biases, which differentiate youth with and without anxiety and/or depression, could act as proximal mechanisms that mediate more distal risks on symptoms. This article reviews the literature on information‐processing biases, their associations with anxiety and depression symptoms in youth and with other distal risk factors, to provide direction for further research.
