Anxiety & Depression

Helpful Information on Anxiety----

Occasional anxiety is a normal part of life. You might feel anxious when faced with a problem at work, before taking a test or making an important decision. But anxiety disorders involve more than temporary worry or fear. For a person with an anxiety disorder, the anxiety does not go away and can get worse over time. The feelings can interfere with daily activities such as job performance, school work and relationships. There are several different types of anxiety disorders. Examples include generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder and social anxiety disorder. (National Institute of Mental Health)
