Anxiety disorders, one of the most prevalent but still underdiagnosed mental health disorders, is often associated with other illnesses, both physical and mental conditions. Studies show that since the COVID-19 pandemic, incidence and prevalence of anxiety disorders have only increased, worsening the quality of life of people all around the world. This project explores the utility of implementing an anxiety screening to both identify at-risk individuals and assess what the perceived benefits of a screening would be from the patient perspective. The goal of this community health project is to help normalize mental health discussions while also promoting the community to obtain help and resources to better understand and cope with their anxiety.
