Anxiety Disorder Studies and Therapy

Currently, a very worrying treatment gap exists within the global setting of studies and therapy regarding anxiety disorder. A recent study has found that a majority of individuals with long-term anxiety disorder have not received any treatment, with approximately 27 percent receiving any treatment and only around 9% experiencing adequate intervention (Alonso et al., 2018). This gap in treatment is vital as an individual ability to treat their anxiety disorders can affect their social, professional, and other facets of life. Receiving lacking or no treatment can adversely affect an individual’s development and growth (Khan, 2013). Current issues that cause such a shortage of professional help are often related to inadequate treatments, lack of specialists, and facilities, inaccessibility, and insufficient awareness regarding the issue.

As such, the proposal would like to advocate for the increased introduction and promotion of certain treatments for anxiety disorders. These can include pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy and their appropriate combinations (Bandelow et al., 2017). This is because these forms of treatment have expressed the most successful results and have extensive histories that have illustrated their safety and applicability. As a result, efforts should be made to provide facilities, especially those in remote areas, with better options for screening, treatment, and monitoring of anxiety disorders in local populations (Wieman et al., 2020). The primary step to curbing the adverse effects of anxiety disorders would be to create more awareness among health care professionals as well as citizens. Additionally, a variety of options and accessibility are vital in assuring that individuals that require treatment attempt to interact with health care workers. Local health and federal authorities will then be responsible for providing reasonable resources to areas that require them. Receiving adequate care is a primary goal of this proposal, and as such follow-up monitoring is essential.
