Anxiety & Depression

Anxiety, worry, or extreme apprehension is your body’s natural response to stress and can arise when introduced to stressful life events. Although anxiety is a natural reaction, in some cases, the worry begins to linger becoming pervasive and chronic. In result of this, sufferers start to dread their everyday routine leading to excessive nervousness and fear while slowly developing more serious issues. If anxiety is untreated, it can lead to Panic Disorders, Social Phobias, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Simple Phobias (such as medical phobias or air travel), Generalized Anxiety Disorder, and Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). All in all, panic attacks result in severe episodes of anxiety that happen in result of certain triggers. Anxiety and panic attacks are known to be a cause of depression.

Depression is a mood disorder that results in significant impairment in daily life. This can be due to a combination of psychological, biological, or social sources of distress.
