Anxiety 101

“According to Mental Health America, over 21% of American adults between the ages of 18 and 64 will have a diagnosable anxiety disorder in a given year, that number represents 42.5 million people”.

Welcome to sesión 8, where Yesenia Reta, LCSW, and I bring our anxiety specialties into one interview for you. We define what anxiety is, go over different type of anxieties, review anxiety in our culture, and the symptoms that anxiety brings.
