ABSTRACT: Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the United States, affecting 18% or more of adults. Anxiety is a natural response to stress and danger but becomes pathological when excessive and uncontrollable. This article discusses symptoms, risk factors, neurobiology and pathophysiology, psychotherapies and medications used in treatment, nursing interventions, and biblical Christian understanding and support for managing anxiety.
