Anxiety Disorders: How Common Are They?

Are anxiety disorders really that common?

Well, take a look at some U.S. statistics from the National Institute of Mental Health:

*In any given year, about 40 million Americans over the age of 18 has an anxiety disorder such as panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, and phobias (social phobia, agoraphobia, and specific phobia).

*In any given year, about 6 million Americans over the age of 18 has Panic Disorder.

*About 1 in 3 who has Panic Disorder develops Agoraphobia. About 1.8 million Americans in any given year over the age of 18 has Agoraphobia without a history of Panic Disorder.

*In any given year, about 2.2 million Americans over the age of 18 has Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD).

*In any given year, about 15 million Americans over the age of 18 has Social Phobia.

* In any given year, about 19 million Americans over the age of 18 has a Specific Phobia.
