Anxiety Disorders Screening
Free Help Available for Anxiety Sufferers!
Anxiety can manifest itself in different ways, but many people say feeling tense and nervous disrupts their lives the most, followed by chronic worrying. Individuals who suffer from an anxiety disorder experience a variety of symptoms that can include spontaneous panic attacks, endlessly checking and rechecking their actions, persistent and uncontrollable worry, and anxiety in social situations. Untreated anxiety disorders often can lead to substance abuse, depression and even suicide. To help individuals learn about anxiety disorders, their symptoms, and effective treatments, St. Joseph's Behavioral Health Center participates in National Anxiety Disorders Screening Day, typically held on the first Wednesday in May. The screening includes viewing a video, completing a brief questionnaire, meeting with a mental health professional to review the questionnaire, and receiving information about various anxiety disorders and mental illnesses.
Please check back in April 2011 for more information on an upcoming Anxiety Disorder Screening.
