Angst in AnxietyAnxiety is one of the world’s primary mental health problems, according to the World Health Organization. It is too often overlooked or not recognized as the problem it is, since anxiety disorders encompass such a wide variety of concerns.

The Angst in Anxiety blog is, naturally, about anxiety — “the big black umbrella” that encompasses a wide range of disorders and diagnoses, such as: obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, acute stress disorder, post traumatic stress disorder, and generalized anxiety disorder.

The author of our new blog is Nanette Burton Mongelluzzo, Ph.D., who works in private practice as a psychotherapist. Nanette works with children, adults, adolescents, couples, and families. She also works as a consultant with public and private schools on issues ranging from suicide and violence prevention to topics on mental health issues affecting youth. She is the author of multiple books, including the recent The Everything Self-Esteem Book with CD.

Please give Nanette a warm Psych Central welcome! I look forward to reading her insights and writing about anxiety and anxiety disorders.
