What are Anxiety Disorders?

Anxiety becomes a mental health issue when it begins to impact a person’s daily life and their ability to live their life fully. Did you know that anxiety disorders are one of the most common mental illnesses? In 2013, an estimated 3 million Canadians (11.6%) aged 18 or older reported they had a mood or anxiety disorder. An anxiety disorder is a chronic condition characterized by excessive symptoms of uneasiness, worry, and even fear that negatively interferes with an individual’s ability to function calmly. When anxiety persists or stops a person from participating in everyday activities, it may be due to an anxiety disorder.
