Mental Health Services – Anxiety Disorders

Feeling anxious from time to time is normal but if irrational worry and nervousness affects your daily routine you may suffer from an anxiety disorder. Anxiety takes many forms and there are several types of anxiety disorders including panic attacks, social phobia, and generalized anxiety disorder. How do you know if you have an anxiety disorder? The feelings of anxiousness do not go away and may even worsen over time.

Symptoms

 

Signs may vary according to the type of anxiety disorder. The symptoms may also vary in levels of severity depending on the individual affected. Physical symptoms may manifest in the body as a result of worry and nervousness. Symptoms may include any or all of the following:

Treatment Options

 
  • Therapy

    Psychotherapy is a type of counseling that can be beneficial for those suffering from anxiety. A psychotherapist can assist patients in learning to cope and control their anxiety. Cognitive behavioral therapy is also a type of psychotherapy that assists patients in learning how to change their thought patterns in order to avoid triggering panic attacks and anxiety.

  • Medication

    Anxiety disorders may be treated with medications known as antidepressants. These medications can help lower anxiety levels and lessen the associated symptoms.

If you are experiencing anxiety or panic attacks consult your physician for proper diagnosis. Anxiety disorders do not go away on their own. Seek professional assistance and treatment. Anxiety can affect every aspect of your life including home, work, and school. Panic attacks and other types of anxiety can cause people to withdraw from social situations and develop depression. A mental health expert can help teach you to take control of your anxiety and your life.
