Students an Psychological Distress

39% of Ontario high school students indicate a moderate-to-serious level of psychological distress (symptoms of anxiety and depression) while a further 17% indicate a serious level of psychological distress. Men have higher rates of substance use disorders than women, while women have higher rates of mood and anxiety disorders.

Mental and physical health are linked. People with a long-term physical health condition such as chronic pain are much more likely to also experience mood disorders. Conversely, people with a mood disorder are at much higher risk of developing a long-term medical condition. People with a mental illness are twice as likely to have a substance use disorder compared to the general population.

Do I Need Anxiety therapy?

Are you curious about whether AERCS could be the right solution for you? Take this short, quick and insightful quiz to uncover your needs and discover how AERCS can make a positive impact in your life. Your journey to anxiety therapy starts here!

Do you avoid certain situations or activities due to fear or anxiety?

Do you have trouble sleeping or concentrating because of anxious thoughts?

Do your heartbeat rise? Do you sweat, shake, or curse in difficult situations?

Do you use alcohol or other substances to cope with these emotions?

Are you feeling isolated or disconnected from others due to your anxiety?

What is anxiety therapy?

Anxiety is a perfectly normal response to a stressful situation. Anyone who doesn’t have an emotional reaction to threats runs the risk of injury and could put others in danger. Anxiety is one of the fine lines between fearlessness and being frightened for your own safety’s sake.

The problem arises when people experience anxiety that’s disproportionate to the perceived threat. Some people are easily frightened and their anxiety is severe and enduring. This might indicate their emotions are out-of-balance and their anxious fears have progressed from a normal response to an unhealthy emotional disorder.

Anxiety therapy is a form of treatment that helps you understand, manage, and reduce your anxiety symptoms. It often involves techniques like cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and relaxation exercises to address and alleviate the underlying causes and manifestations of anxiety.

How common are anxiety disorders in Canada?

According to a study done by CAMH, anxiety disorders affect 11.6% of Canadian adults each year which makes it one of Canada’s most common mental disorders. More than one-quarter of all adults with anxiety report that it has a moderate to significant impact on their lives. And yet the same studies show a reluctance among middle class citizens to seek treatment and instead they chose to live with this debilitating mental illness.

What Can Anxiety Affect?

With more than one hundred symptoms, anxiety can be difficult to recognize and pinpoint as the cause of any malaise. The most common manifestations include avoidance, difficulty concentrating, excessive worrying and sleep problems, fatigue, muscle tension, and restlessness.

Anxiety can also produce panic attacks, heart irregularities, skin rashes, shooting pains, tremors, brain zaps or shivers, and phantom smells. AERCS therapist and social workers can help identify the symptoms you’re experiencing and whether anxiety might be the cause.
