WHAT ARE THE TYPES OF ANXIETY IN MENTAL HEALTH?
1. Panic disorders
Panic attacks can be experienced completely out of the blue or as a response
to particular situations. They
are usually short-lived and may include symptoms such as shortness of breath,
dizziness, nausea and palpitations. Sufferers may feel as though they are about
to die, collapse or faint. They may also
feel separated from reality (de-realisation) whereby they feel depersonalised.
2. Generalised anxiety disorders
Sometimes known as ‘free-floating anxiety’, this form does not seem
attributable to a particular stimulus, and consequently this is what
distinguishes it from other forms of anxiety.
The symptoms include tension, worry and apprehension.
These involve an
intense fear or
avoidance of particular
objects or situations
that is disproportionate to any
real threat that may be posed. Such
phobias are often categorised into social phobias (e.g. fear of open spaces)
and simple phobias (e.g. fear of spiders).
