As a top psychiatric residential treatment facility, Skyland Trail specializes in treating adults with complex mental health challenges.
What Are Anxiety Disorders?
Everyone experiences feelings and physical symptoms of stress when dealing with difficult situations or people. However, people with diagnosed anxiety disorders experience disability as a result of their response to stress. Untreated, their symptoms may often prevent them from engaging in social and family relationships, meeting job performance requirements, and participating in other daily activities.
Types of Anxiety Disorders
Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illnesses in the U.S., affecting 40 million adults, or 18 percent of the population at any point in time. Anxiety disorders include:
- Panic disorder
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Generalized anxiety disorder
Anxiety disorders frequently co-occur with depressive disorders or substance misuse, and some people are diagnosed with more than one type of anxiety disorder concurrently.
