According to the World Health Organization, anxiety disorders are the most prevalent mental illnesses on the globe at the moment. Is this a disease of modernity? Or is our highly competitive and material culture itself undermining our nerves?
According to the statistics, anxiety disorders affect 40 million adults in the United States aged 18 and older, or 18% of the population every year.
The Age of Anxiety examines what anxiety is, and how and why it is being re-defined by medical and pharmaceutical industries.
While anxiety disorders are highly treatable, only 36.9% of those suffering receive treatment.
