Anxiety is a feeling of unease, worry or fear. We can all feel anxious at times, but anxiety may be a mental health problem if your feelings are very strong or last a long time. 

It’s normal to feel anxious sometimes. It’s our natural reaction to feeling threatened, under pressure or stressed. Anxiety isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It can spur us on, help us stay alert, make us aware of risks and motivate us. However, anxiety can be a problem if it’s affecting your ability to live your life. If your anxiety is ongoing, intense, hard to control or out of proportion to your situation, it can be the sign of a mental health problem. Help is available no matter how long you've felt anxious for or how severe your symptoms are. There are many different types of treatment, so talk to your GP about all your options.
