19 Million Americans Have Anxiety Disorders
But one-third don't seek treatment
(HealthDay) -- More than 19 million Americans will suffer an anxiety disorder each year, and one-third of them will not seek treatment, says a story in The Record of Bergen County, N.J.
The story says that although anxiety disorders used to be "misunderstood, misdiagnosed and trivialized," they now are being given the kind of attention that obsessive-compulsive disorders drew a decade ago.
Help is also available for the loved ones and care-givers of people with anxiety disorders at this site.
