What is Anxiety?
An anxiety disorder is a mental health condition characterized by excessive and persistent feelings of worry, fear, or dread that interfere with daily activities. Anxiety disorders can take different forms, including generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
People with anxiety disorders often experience physical symptoms such as sweating, trembling, rapid heartbeat, and shortness of breath, even when there is no real danger present. Anxiety disorders can be caused by a combination of genetic, environmental, and psychological factors. Treatment for anxiety disorders may include therapy, medication, lifestyle changes, and self-care strategies.
