You are Not Alone! 12 Anxiety Facts + Resources You Need Now

12 Anxiety Resources You Need Now. You Are Not Alone #anxiety #resources #stats


Anxiety is the most common mental health condition in the United States, affecting over 40 million adults before the pandemic hit. Now that we’ve been in a constant state of uncertainty, loss and fear as the pandemic lingers longer than expected, those numbers have skyrocketed. Maybe you’re hiding your anxiety behind destructive perfectionism and people-pleasing. Or maybe you’re watching your world shrink as you accommodate your anxiety on a daily basis. If you’re holding a Starbucks in one hand and an anti-anxiety pill in the other as you unravel inside, you are not alone.

So often we think, “why can’t I control it”, “what’s wrong with me” or “if I just keep moving I’ll outrun it.” You don’t have to. Anxiety has spread like wildfire during the pandemic. You don’t have to hide it or run from it.

Experiencing anxiety is not a sign of weakness or lack of control. Nor is reaching out for help. When we are brave enough to be vulnerable and expose our wounds, we free others to release their shame and meet us in the light.

My goal here is that you feel seen, heard, and supported.

So I’ve compiled some stats and resources to underscore that this struggle is real, it’s widespread and bubbling just below the surface. I encourage you to seek treatment and support in any way you feel comfortable because I know that you are meant for so much more than accommodating your disorders.

Anxiety Treatment Options

While these statistics can be comforting, for those suffering they can also feel devastating. Where do we go from here? According to the American Psychological Association, “Anxiety disorders are very treatable. Most patients who suffer from anxiety are able to reduce or eliminate symptoms after several (or fewer) months of psychotherapy, and many patients notice improvement after just a few sessions.”

Even if psychotherapy is not for you, techniques like meditation, exposure therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, coaching, and certain medications can be extremely effective in reducing and managing your symptoms. A certain amount of anxiety is normal, so learning how to welcome rather than fear it is the key to taking back control of your life.
