Mental health disorders


Anxiety is another widespread disorder, affecting almost 5% of people in the UK.

While it is perfectly normal to feel anxious about certain situations, such as starting a new job or school, or moving away from home, anxiety can affect people in more serious ways.

Feelings of anxiety cause the body to release hormones, which can increase the heart rate and lead to sweating. It can also affect a person’s everyday life by lowering self-esteem, avoiding social situations and preventing them from even leaving their house.
