CONCLUSION
CONTEXT
Anxiety Disorders
According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) (2012), anxiety disorders “are a group of mental illnesses that cause people to feel excessively frightened, distressed, or uneasy during situations in which most other people would not experience these same feelings” (NAMI, What are anxiety disorders? section, para. 1). When anxiety disorders are not treated, they can have a profoundly negative impact on a person’s life; affecting all aspects. NAMI (2012) states that untreated anxiety disorder can create feelings of “low self-esteem, lead to substance abuse, and isolation from one’s friends and family” (NAMI, What are anxiety disorders? section, para. 1).
It is estimated that approximately 5–6 percent of the American population is affected by anxiety disorders. The most common anxiety disorders are panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), phobias, generalized anxiety disorder, and social anxiety disorder.
Determining when anxiety is so severe that it constitutes a disorder will depend on several factors, including:
• Other causes of anxiety are not identified. The anxiety is not caused by a medical problem, or drug or substance abuse.
• The anxiety is distressing.
• The anxiety interferes with daily functioning.
• The anxiety does not stop on its own within a few days.
The good news is that anxiety disorders are treatable, and most people with an anxiety disorder can be helped with therapy, medication, and exercise, or with alternative treatments such as relaxation techniques, yoga, or a combination of treatments (NAMI, 2012, What treatments are available for anxiety disorders? section, paras. 1–2).

• Describe the behaviors associated with anxiety disorder a clinician would expect to find that represent the DSM-5 criteria.
• When diagnosing anxiety disorders, should the clinician expect different behaviors or symptoms based on age (children compared with adults or adults compared with adolescents) and gender? Be sure you support your arguments with relevant scholarly and professional resources.
Your completed assessment should be approximately 3–4 pages in length, excluding title page and reference page. In addition to theDSM-5, support your statements and decisions with references to at least two scholarly or professional resources.
