Anxiety

According to the American Psychiatric Association, “Anxiety is a normal reaction to stress and can be beneficial in some situations. It can alert us to dangers and help us prepare and pay attention.” Anxiety disorders differ from normal feelings of nervousness or anxiousness, but sometimes they can lead to excessive fear or anxiety. Anxiety disorders are the most common of mental disorders and affect nearly 30 percent of adults at some point in their lives. 

 

Anxiety refers to anticipation of a future concern and may be associated with muscle tension and avoidance behavior. Anxiety disorders are real, serious medical conditions. 

 

National prevalence data indicate that nearly 40 million people in the United States (18%) experience an anxiety disorder in any given year. And only about one-third of those suffering from an anxiety disorder receive treatment, even though the disorders are highly treatable. Approximately 8% of children and teenagers experience an anxiety disorder with most people developing symptoms before age 21.
