Anxiety is a feeling of unease, such as worry or fear, that can be mild or severe. Anxiety disorders are a group of mental health conditions characterized by persistent, excessive fear or worry in situations that are not threatening. These disorders include GAD, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, and specific phobias. Anxiety disorders are the most common mental health disorders, affecting millions of people worldwide.
Persistent or excessive worry and stress can negatively affect a person’s physical and mental health. It’s essential to create appropriate stress management and anxiety reduction practices in order to prevent these negative consequences. They may also be influenced by marital issues, high financial and work pressures, and significant life changes.
A worldwide issue, generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) affects 9% of the population, or 110 million people. GAD is characterized by persistent or intractable worry over a wide range of daily concerns. In 2013, an estimated 3 million Canadians (11.6%) aged 18 or older reported they had a mood or anxiety disorder. A person with GAD could experience constant concern, planning for the worst-case situation while obsessing over their spouse, family, career, health, and other factors.
