WHAT IS ANXIETY?

Along with depression, anxiety is one of the most common mental disorders in the world, both in adolescents and in adults. Generally speaking it is a natural biological phenomenon which helps us discern threatening situations and deal with them accordingly through our fight, flight or freeze mechanism. However, this mechanism can at times become hypersensitive and start sending warning signals to the brain even when nothing is seemingly wrong. If this persists and is left untreated an anxiety disorder might develop.

There are many types of anxiety disorders, such as generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder (or social phobia), separation anxiety disorder and a range of specific phobias related to various objects or situations that can provoke intense, overwhelming feelings of fear followed by uncomfortable physical symptoms.
