The anxiety epidemic in the United States is rampant. With every year that goes by, the number of people diagnosed with anxiety is climbing. No child or adult is free from the risk of an anxiety disorder. If you do not believe me, you must believe the facts. The Child Mind Institute published that anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness among children with over 22% of children being diagnosed with the disorder. Beyond children, national surveys at the end of 2018 showed that 40% of people have experienced more anxiety in the past year than the year prior. We, as a society, must recognize it and must do something about it.
