The dedicated team at Anxiety.org is committed to making mental health information accessible, inclusive, easy-to-find, and easy-to-understand. We want anyone suffering from an anxiety disorder to have access to all the resources they need to understand and overcome their condition. This website provides the latest and most relevant information by working directly with distinguished doctors, therapists, scientists, and specialists to keep you on the cutting-edge of research and advancements in the field, while keeping our content approachable for the average reader. Our goal is to bridge the understanding gap that exists between mental health professionals and those actually dealing with anxiety disorders.
Hundreds of millions of people worldwide have been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder or related mood or mental health issue. In fact, some studies have estimated the number to be over 1 billion! And the majority of those diagnosed or struggling with an anxiety disorder don't receive treatment or have access to the information, treatment, or tools they need during their journey to recovery. Anxiety.org is there to provide support to people no matter what their environment or economic status.
It is not surprising that there are over four million monthly Internet searches worldwide on anxiety-related terms. Some of these searches come from undiagnosed individuals seeking basic knowledge about what they are experiencing; others come from diagnosed persons looking for specific information and guidance; and still others come from individuals seeking understanding and advice regarding a family member, loved one, or close friend who is dealing with anxiety. For people with these conditions, the isolating nature and stigma associated with anxiety disorders has been a significant obstacle to seeking professional treatment. Anxiety.org allows anxiety sufferers the ability to seek help anonymously and conveniently.
We have partnered with hundreds of schools, institutions, researchers and clinicians, experienced therapists, and other mental health and wellness experts. All the donations received, as well as 100% of Anxiety.org revenue in 2016, will be used to fund grants to universities, clinics, and research institutions.

"More and more, district leaders are focusing on promoting and assessing students’ social-emotional learning (SEL) competencies.
Rigorous research shows that SEL leads to greater academic achievement, better mental health, and career success. Your district community -- from administrators, to parents, to teachers -- is likely bought into the idea that SEL can help children deal with the stressors and challenges in school and life.
But in order to cultivate students’ social-emotional skills, the adults in your building also need to feel supported and valued. Promoting student SEL starts with adults. In other words -- is your district attending to the social-emotional development and self-care of educators and staff?
This guide will equip you with the strategies and tools you need to strengthen adult SEL. By the end, you’ll understand different approaches to adult SEL as well as how to measure and implement it in your district.

Using deep breathing is a great way to relieve anxiety and stress. Deep breathing helps us to relax by making us focus on our breath and thus shifting our attention away from what it is that is worrying us. When we practice deep breathing regularly, it becomes a valuable tool we can use to give us immediate and long-term relief from stress, worry and anxiety. The resource includes how deep breathing works and instructions to do it.
