Anxiety Disorders Affecting Teens and Young Adults.

Anxiety is one clinical mental health diagnosis that many people deal with, but that so few of us have space or comfortability to talk about. Globally, anxiety disorders affect teens and young adults at higher rates, and they face the added pressures of society and stigmas. It is because of this that many teens and young adults do not speak out about their experiences or even concerns dealing with anxiety. This article will explore what anxiety means, how it can present itself, and how anxiety disorders affect teens and young adults. As a society, we need to not only normalize conversations about mental health (particularly about anxiety) and increase awareness and education. Talking about mental health is essential for improving quality of life.
