depression-assessmentThis online anxiety assessment is not intended to be a substitute for a professional in-person clinical evaluation. Assessing an anxiety disorder typically involves an in-person interview with a psychiatrist or professional counselor in order to determine the extent of a person’s anxiety and possibly identify underlying causes of the anxiety symptoms. A standardized assessment (such as the GAD-7) is frequently used in conjunction with an in-person clinical evaluation.

Treating anxiety symptoms is often accomplished through cognitive/behavioral therapy and sometimes medication therapy. There are a range of therapeutic approaches for assisting individuals in managing their anxiety.

There are numerous non-profit and private healthcare providers across the U.S. who specialize in the treatment of anxiety-related disorders. Common forms of anxiety disorder include GAD (generalized anxiety disorder), panic attack, and PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder). Anxiety is a common presenting problem when individuals seek mental health counseling. Community support groups are offered in some cities across the country. Anti-anxiety medication therapy is available through local psychiatrists and some family practitioners who have experience in treating anxiety disorders.
