Anxiety is the emotional state which will bring humans into psychiatric treatment than any other emotional challenge.
Anxiety is described in terms of symptoms such as feeling restless, fatigued, keyed-up, irritable, suffering from muscular tension, and being unable to sleep or concentrate. Acute anxiety attacks (panic attacks) are described in terms of even more intense responses, such as heart pounding, sweating, shaking, difficulty breathing, chest and abdominal pain, nausea, dizziness, and extreme fear. As a result, sufferers often cope with it in ways of alcohol and drug use, extreme and involuntary dissociation responses, self-harm, eating disorders, violence and other behavior designed to avoid anxiety. Apparently, twice as many women as men report anxiety which may be related to men's preference for certain of these other behaviors.
As you can imagine, a plethora of medications have been trialed and used to treat anxiety. There is little evidence that drugs, used alone, reduce the frequency and severity of anxiety, and users have been shown to exhibit the same level of fear and avoidance behavior after the drug treatment as before (Franklin, 1996, p7).
According to a survey conducted by the non-profit organisation BeyondBlue, anxiety is the most common mental health condition in Australia, with an estimated two million sufferers. BeyondBlue's Chief Executive suggests that one in four of Australians in any given year will experience some kind of anxiety condition, and 38 per cent of those who sought professional support for anxiety have been experiencing symptoms for longer than 12 months before getting support.
