Anxiety disorder, sometimes referred to as Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), is a mental health condition that causes a persistent sense of fear, worry, and nervousness that permeates every aspect of life. It can make seemingly normal, even mundane, tasks and responsibilities seem like insurmountable challenges, causing stress, tension, and apprehension. Anxiety disorder can make it difficult to maintain healthy social relationships, leading to isolation and, in turn, further anxiety. This, combined with constant feelings of worry over the future and dread about everyday activities, can cast a long shadow over an otherwise healthy and fulfilling life.
Anxiety disorder can take many forms. While some suffer from a general heightened sense of anxiety, others may have panic attacks due to specific phobias, such as large crowds or being in a confined space. Children sometimes display selective mutism, also classified as a form of anxiety disorder.
