This new PSA campaign brings much-needed attention to anxiety disorders, a group of illnesses that affects about 23 million Americans. The PSA features three scenarios depicting how someone with panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder or post-traumatic stress disorder might act in an otherwise normal situation. It's a powerful educational tool and should help people recognize the illness in themselves or loved ones--perhaps for the first time. The PSA and other information about anxiety disorders are available on the NIMH Anxiety Disorders Web site at http://www.nimh.nih.gov/anxiety. Consumers can also call toll-free for information at (888) 826-9438.
