Depression and Anxiety often occur at the same time. In fact, it’s been estimated that 45 percent of people with one mental health condition meets the criteria for two or more disorders. One study found that 50% of people with either anxiety or depression have other conditions. Although each condition has its own causes, they share many similar symptoms and treatments.
Anxiety can happen to anyone from time to time. It’s not unusual to experience anxiety before a big event or important decision. Chronic anxiety can be debilitating and lead to irrational thoughts and fears that will interfere with your everyday life.
