Anxiety Project

Welcome to my final project.


The prevalence of anxiety disorders across the world varies from 2.5 to 7 percent by country. Globally an estimated 284 million people experienced an anxiety disorder in 2017, making it the most prevalent mental health or neurodevelopmental disorder.1


The goal of this project initially was to examine treatment options for anxiety disorders, such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, and more. However, the lack of available research data was quite frustrating, so the goal of my project became to raise awareness to the under-rated value of anxiety research on healthcare costs and mental health for those with disorders.
