National Anxiety and Depression Awareness Week is May 5th - 11th

Each year more than 17 million Americans will suffer from an anxiety disorder and more than 19 million Americans will suffer with a depressive illness. Often these illnesses manifest with not only emotional symptoms but physical symptoms as well. Individuals often believe the cause of their discomfort and pain is an undiagnosed physical illness. Anxiety and depression can happen to anyone at anytime.

The following are symptoms of anxiety and depression:
  • constant uncontrollable worrying
  • feeling blue, sad , or hopeless
  • sleeping problems, poor concentration
  • anxiety attacks, nervousness, or tension
  • feelings of intense anxiety in social situations
  • loss of pleasure
  • phobias
  • unexplainable aches, pains, or headaches
  • obsessions
