As many as forty million American citizens aged eighteen and above will experience anxiety at some point in their lives. Anxiety is an incredibly common mental health issue, and although it may feel highly individualized and isolated, many cases are similar. As much as forty-two billion dollars is spent annually by the American government for treating and diagnosing anxiety disorders. This amount equates to approximately one-third of the entire national budget for mental health per annum. Women are more likely to suffer from an anxiety disorder (except for post-traumatic stress disorder) than men. The Anxiety and Depression Association of America states anxiety can occur earlier in a woman's life than a man's and that it is most common in women who are aged between puberty and fifty years old.
