Anxiety disorders are the most common mental health concern in the United States. Each anxiety disorder has unique symptoms. However, all anxiety disorders have one thing in common: persistent, excessive fear or worry in situations that are not threatening.
Anxiety disorders can occur with other mental health conditions, such as depression, substance abuse, ADHD, eating disorders, and trouble sleeping. Anxiety can make these related conditions worse, so treatment is important if anxiety begins to interfere on a daily basis.
