Prioritizing mental health applies to each and every one of us. Mental health is a broad topic with many facets. It includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being and affects how we feel, think, and act. If you struggle with mental health symptoms, you are not alone. While it may seem brave to go it alone, it actually takes strength to reach out for help.

Anxiety disorder may make the person feel anxious, without any apparent reason. In some cases, the anxious feelings may be so distressing that the person may become dysfunctional. Fear is another emotion with considerable similarity.

Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), one may feel extreme and unrealistic worry and tension even without a potential trigger for these feelings. 
Panic disorder has intense, sudden panic attacks which compiles of sweating, palpitations (feeling like your heart is pounding), chest pain or tightness, feeling of choking, which can last for a few minutes to hours in some cases.

Phobias are an intense fear of certain situations or objects. Some of these fears may make sense, such as a fear of snakes or spiders etc but often, the level of fear doesn’t match the situation.

Social anxiety disorder; worry about others judging you or you may be anxious that you’ll embarrass yourself or open yourself up to ridicule. People with social anxiety disorder may avoid social situations entirely.
Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD): OCD obsessions: People have repetitive and distressing fears or urges they can’t control. These obsessive thoughts cause intense anxiety. OCD compulsions: To control their anxieties, people with OCD turn to certain behaviours, rituals or routines. They do so repeatedly. 


Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health issue that can develop after a distressing event. The event may be dangerous, life-threatening, shocking or very scary. 

Medications can’t cure anxiety disorders. But they can improve symptoms and help you function better. Psychotherapy, or counseling, helps you deal with your emotional response to the illness. A mental health provider talks through strategies to help you better understand and manage the disorder.
