Getting Help for Anxiety

More than 40 million North Americans suffer from chronic forms of nervousness that interfere with their life. These are anxiety disorders, which are highly treatable forms of mental illness that can benefit from counseling, support, medication, or alternative therapies. If anxiety is interfering with your life or bothersome in ways that interfere with your relationships, your job, and your happiness, don’t be a prisoner to the disabling condition. Anxiety can’t be seen like a rash or a mole, but it is just as real, and it’s not your fault. Failing to understand anxiety can lead you to suffer longer as you struggle to control its symptoms. This can contribute to additional stress and health problems like depression. Reach out and get proper help from mental health professionals through an insurance referral from your doctor or help from an employee assistance program.
