General Anxiety Disorder has become an increasing problem in the youth population. The authors conducted a survey of youth ages 16-24, on what life is like for those who are living with anxiety. In this cohort of 200, the youngest participants were the least likely to be diagnosed, see a professional, and take medication for their anxiety. A significant number said that anxiety affects their day-to-day lives and also causes many physical side effects.
