/Anxiety

Anxiety is a natural and universal emotion, generated by a psychological mechanism of response to a threat. When anxiety persists even after the end of the potentially anxiogenic events, it becomes a pathological condition known as anxiety disorder, characterized by a permanent state of tension that compromises the person’s ability to function and making judgements. Pathological anxiety has negative effects on the life-quality for those who suffer from it; it can cause social isolation, it can compromise the regular performance of daily activities and work and, over time, can also lead to health issues.
