Anxiety Disorders


Anxiety is a sense of worry, apprehension, fear, and distress. It is normal to have these sensations on occasion. What distinguishes occasional anxiety from anxiety disorders, however, is the frequency and severity of symptoms. Young people with anxiety disorders are typically so afraid, worried, or uneasy that they cannot function normally.  Affecting as many as one in ten children and adolescents, anxiety disorders are one of the primary mental health problems experienced by young people today.  With early identification and treatment, however, anxiety disorders can often be effectively managed or reversed.
