What are Anxiety Disorders?

Anxiety disorders are a group of mental health conditions characterized by excessive and persistent feelings of fear, worry, and apprehension. These feelings can be so severe that they interfere with a person’s daily activities and quality of life. Anxiety disorders are among the most common mental health conditions, affecting millions of people worldwide.

There are several different types of anxiety disorders, including generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, specific phobias, and separation anxiety disorder. Each of these disorders has its own set of symptoms and diagnostic criteria, but they all share the common feature of excessive and persistent anxiety.

Symptoms of anxiety disorders can include physical symptoms such as rapid heart rate, sweating, trembling, and nausea, as well as psychological symptoms such as excessive worry, fear, and avoidance behaviors. Treatment for anxiety disorders may include therapy, medication, or a combination of both, and can be highly effective in managing symptoms and improving quality of life.
