Anxiety is an intense feeling of worry or fear, that can vary dramatically in how much it is felt. The symptoms of General Anxiety Disorder are more severe than being stressed or worried about something. When a young person is affected to the point of being able to cope with their daily activities, you should seek professional help.
Facts about Anxiety Disorders
30% of the world population suffers with anxiety.
6% of people report anxiety disorders a week, & 8 million cases a year.
Anxiety is persistent with no reasonable triggers. You find it hard to control your worries and it can become very difficult to manage. It affects your day-to-day life or gets in the way of living your life the way you want. It can become an overwhelming challenge in a young person’s life, learning, socialising, and enjoying school and home.
Despite anxiety being a significantly challenging condition, there are several ways to help alleviate the symptoms including:
- Antidepressant or Anxiolytic (Anxiety)
- Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)
- Social Skills training
