Any illness where the primary condition is persistent and/or extreme anxiety. Such illnesses include: Panic Disorder, Agoraphobia, Social Phobia, Obssessive-Compulsive Disorder, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, and Acute Stress Disorder.

Generalized Anxiety Disorder

A condition that is marked by feelings of serious apprehension or tension that occurs on a very regular basis (often at all times).

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder

A condition that results in the persistence of negative thoughts and/or the performance of repetitive tasks. These tasks are performed as a means of alleviating a certain fear or anxiety (such as excessive hand washing).

Panic Attacks

The individual experiences brief, but intense, anxiety. The attacks are not triggered. Instead, they seem to come from nowhere. The person feels as though they are going to lose control.

Posttraumatic Stress Disorder
