So what is an anxiety disorder and who can have one?

Anxiety disorders are real, common and treatable conditions that…

  • more than 4 million Canadian men and women are diagnosed with annually.

  • almost seven percent of college students report having symptoms.

  • can occur at any age but often will surface during a person's teens or twenties.

  • are twice as likely to occur in women as men.

In fact, 30 percent of women will have some type of anxiety disorder during their lifetime.
Take the time to figure out whether the anxiety you are experiencing is the same anxiety we all have occasionally or whether it is so persistent and severe that it may be an anxiety disorder. Take a self-test.
