Anxiety Disorders
RNSG 2213 Mental Health
Nursing
Definition

\u2022Anxiety is a normal response to
threatening situations. It becomes
pathological when it interferes with
adaptive behavior, causes physical
symptoms, or exceeds a tolerable level.
Individuals with anxiety disorders use
rigid, repetitive, and ineffective behaviors
to try to control anxiety.

Prevalence

\u2022Anxiety disorders are the most common of
all psychiatric disorders in the United
States, affecting up to 13.3% of the
population. People may have more that
one anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorders
and depression occur together frequently.
Other disorders include substance abuse,
somatization, and other anxiety disorders.
Women are affected more than men.
