Anxiety disorders are mental health diseases that are often brought on by stress. The term ‘anxiety disorder’ encompasses a number of psychiatric disorders – all of which can cause mental trepidation, dissociative anxiety, and physical symptoms. Many people suffer from anxiety that is unrelated to any specific circumstance or object, but rather produces ongoing symptoms seemingly at random. This is called generalized anxiety disorder and it is the most common type of anxiety disorder in the U.S.
Did you know…
that anxiety is the most common mental illness in America? According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, anxiety affects 18 percent of the adult population in the U.S. But of the 40 million adults over age 18 who are suffering from anxiety, only about 13 million are actively seeking treatment or being treated for the disorder. By failing to seek treatment, the other 27 million are gambling with their health and putting themselves at risk for developing depression.
