Everyone feels anxious in certain situations. Anxiety motivates us to prepare for important events and protects us when we are in harm’s way. However, anxiety becomes problematic when it is out of proportion to the situation in a way that interferes with daily activities. Affecting approximately one in eight children and one in six adults, anxiety disorders are the most frequently occurring behavioral health disorders. Though anxiety disorders are among the most treatable behavioral health disorders, only about one-third of those suffering from an anxiety disorder receive treatment.
