Anxiety Disorders

Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illnesses affecting, according to the National Institute of Mental Health, an estimated 40 million American adults and one in eight children.   They are real, they are serious, and they are treatable.

Anxiety often co-occurs with depression, eating disorders, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and other disorders. Research shows that untreated children with anxiety disorders are at higher risk to perform poorly in school, miss out on important social experiences, and engage in substance abuse.

The term “anxiety disorder” refers to generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), panic disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), social anxiety disorder (also called social phobia), and specific phobias. They develop from a complex set of risk factors, including genetics, brain chemistry, personality, and life events.

Fortunately anxiety disorders are highly treatable.
