Generalized Anxiety Disorder ♦ Social Anxiety Disorder ♦ Panic Disorder ♦ Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the United States, affecting 40 million adults and older (18.1% of the population). Anxiety disorders can be frightening. Some disorders can induce an irrational worry or fear that something bad will happen. This can take a physical toll on a person's body, leading to fatigue, restlessness, dizziness, increased heart rate, nausea, diarrhea and sweating. People who suffer from anxiety disorders experience trembling, twitching, shaking, irritability, and impatience, or may become easily distracted.
If you are experiencing these symptoms over prolonged periods of time - even if they are induced by difficult situations - please setup an appointment with one of our counselors to discuss your concerns. You can setup an appointment by calling 860-832-1945, or by coming in person to Marcus White Hall, Room 205.
Prior to your appointment, please also complete the self-tests on Wellness, Stress, and College Adjustment. Please print these results and bring them with you to your first appointment so that your counselor will be informed and better able to address your concerns, as there may be contributing factors to your anxiety.
