It is estimated that almost a third of adults experience some kind of anxiety disorder in their life time (National Institute of Mental Health). Just like there are different types and severity of depression, anxiety disorders fall into different diagnostic categories, such as Generalized Anxiety, Panic Attacks, or Obsessive-Compulsive
disorders. Also, almost every person struggling with depression experiences anxiety along with their depressed mood. So anxiety is a very common symptom and one that has to be carefully evaluated, and the appropriate treatment approach prescribed. Again, an experienced therapist or counselor is critical for receiving the best help possible.
