GENERALIZED ANXIETY DISORDER

WHAT IS GENERALIZED ANXIETY?

Persistent, excessive worrying that disrupts your ability to focus and/or function is the main symptom of Generalized Anxiety (Crocetti et al., 2015).

 

If you find you can't stop worrying, if it is keeping you up at night, if reasoning with yourself isn't working - talk to your parents and talk to your family doctor.  These symptoms are also twice as likely to occur in adolescents who identify as female but are still prevalent in those who identify as male also (Crocetti et al., 2015).
