Gepp, AR (PressExposure) February 03, 2007 -- According to the World Health Organization, women are the primary sufferers of anxiety and depression. The National Institute of Mental Health reports that women are twice as likely as men to be affected by anxiety disorders.
In Anxiety Attack 101: Women's Edition, Richards covers the types of anxiety disorder (Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Social Phobia or Social Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, Agoraphobia, Specific Phobias, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) in addition to risk, statistics, treatment options and resources.
"Treatment options for anxiety sufferers have come a long way since my grandmother suffered," states Richards. "Anxiety affects women in different ways. The treatment method that works for one woman may not work for another." Natural and medical treatment options are presented.
"Women cannot afford to be ignorant about anxiety," says Richards. "We must be armed with information, ready to protect ourselves, our daughters and our friends from the dangers of anxiety disorder."
