Anxiety disorders are the most common mental health condition in the U.S. today. Even so, there’s still a stigma around anxiety and panic attacks.
Emily Bilek, Ph.D., a clinical psychologist, joins host Preeti Malani, M.D, M.S.J., Chief Health Officer, University of Michigan, to answer some of the most searched questions on the internet about anxiety, including:
- What’s the difference between an anxiety attack and a panic attack?
- Why do anxiety attacks cause chest pain?
- What can you do to help someone who is having an anxiety attack?
- What could exposure therapy mean for people who live with anxiety?
Anxiety disorders are real, and they are common. But there’s a lot to be hopeful about, and Dr. Bilek helps walk us through the facts.
