Anxiety disorders are among the most prevalent mental health conditions experienced during childhood and adolescence. However, these disorders are often undetected, misdiagnosed, or untreated. The long-term impact of untreated anxiety can negatively affect the child’s academic functioning and success, family relationships, career pursuits, and ability to connect with their peer group. It increases the child’s susceptibility to maladaptive coping strategies such as substance use. As the child’s anxiety persists into adulthood, it increases their risk for a host of significant health complications, including impaired sleep patterns, digestive problems, and damage to the kidneys, blood vessels, and heart. There is widespread misperception about the seriousness that anxiety disorders pose; a survey of Americans undertaken by some of the leading mental health and suicide prevention groups found that more than half of the respondents did not recognize that anxiety disorders increase the risk of suicide.
