Do you worry excessively? Do you find yourself constantly thinking about the “what ifs”? Are you unable to control your worry? Do you worry about something bad happening in various situations? Are you overly concerned about your health and/or your loved ones' health? Do you feel on edge most days? Does your chronic worrying impact your sleep? If so, you may be struggling with Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)!

GAD is one of the most common anxiety disorders. It affects approximately 3% of the Canadian population in a given year. Women are more likely to get the disorder than men. GAD usually begins in childhood and adolescence, but it can also start in adulthood. It can lead to unemployment and/or serious social/family problems. Psychological treatment is available to treat GAD.
