Anxiety†Disorders

What are Anxiety Disorders?

Anxiety is a normal reaction to stress. It helps one deal with a tense situation
in the office or in a relationship, study harder for an exam, or keep focused on
an important speech, for example.† In general, it helps one cope. But when
anxiety becomes an excessive, irrational dread of everyday situations, it has
become a disabling disorder.†

There are Five (5) major types of anxiety disorders are:

††††† Generalized Anxiety Disorder
††††† Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
††††††Panic Disorder
††††† Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
††††† Social Phobia (or Social Anxiety Disorder)

If you have concerns, we recommend you seek professional assistance from a
Mental Health professional; you can make an appointment with the Chabot
