Frequently Asked Questions

What is Anxiety?

Anxiety is a common mental health condition that affects millions of people worldwide. It is a normal stress reaction and can be beneficial in certain situations, such as helping you stay focused during a presentation or making quick decisions in an emergency. However, when Anxiety becomes chronic and interferes with your daily life, it can escalate into a more severe condition that requires professional help and treatment. In some cases, Anxiety can become so severe that it can lead to addiction and substance abuse, which may require rehabilitation. Understanding the signs and symptoms of severe Anxiety and seeking timely help can prevent the condition from spiraling out of control and improve the chances of successful recovery.  If you are here seeking Anxiety therapy options near you, please visit our treatment provider portal to find one in your area.

Bipolar Disorder, also known as manic depression, is a mental health condition characterized by extreme mood swings between episodes of mania and depression.

What is Depression?
