“On some level, anxiety has positive qualities. It can motivate you to make change or alert us to something going on. The emotion of anxiety itself isn’t necessarily a bad thing,” says ADAA member Michael Ziffra, MD in this article on when you should seek help for anxiety.
"Culture affects the way we express our thoughts, behaviors and emotions. It is therefore not surprising that there are cultural differences in the way anxiety and depression is manifested and treated." ADAA member Karen Martinez, MD, MSc, authors this blog post on the influences of cultural differences in the diagnosis and treatment of anxiety and depression.
ADAA is an international nonprofit organization dedicated to the prevention, treatment, and cure of anxiety, depressive, obsessive-compulsive, and trauma-related disorders through education, practice, and research.
