Anxiety becomes a severe mental health concern for teens and young adults when it starts to impact everyday life. It may be challenging to keep up with schoolwork and other responsibilities. On top of that, relationships may start to become strained.
People experiencing severe anxiety feel constantly on edge and are easily triggered into negative emotions. There are many potential causes of anxiety, including heredity and environmental factors.
Types of anxiety include obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, phobias, PTSD, and separation anxiety disorder.
