Anxiety Disorders ScreeningRP-5000.5000-050
Programs that offer simple tests for people who have feelings of fear, chronic worrying, obsessive ritualistic behaviors or a feeling that something is wrong, and who want to learn more about anxiety disorders and ways of coping with their symptoms. Individuals generally have an opportunity to see a film and/or hear a talk about the causes, symptoms and treatment of anxiety disorders; complete a screening questionnaire; and talk with a mental health professional about the results. People who test positively are encouraged to seek further evaluation and, potentially, treatment. Anxiety disorders covered by the screenings include generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, phobias, post-traumatic stress disorder and obsessive-compulsive disorder. Most anxiety disorder screenings are confidential and available at no cost. Anxiety disorders screenings may also be available by telephone or online.
