Mood and anxiety disorders are among the most common types of mental disorders in Canada. They are known to have a major impact on the daily lives of those affected. According to key findings of the Canadian Report of Mood and Anxiety Disorders, approximately 1 in 10 (3.5 million) Canadians used health services annually for mood and anxiety disorders.
Although anxiety affects the mood, it is not considered a mood disorder as is not directly related to moods. Mood disorders are characterized by the lowering or elevation of a person’s emotional state, while anxiety is characterized by excessive and persistent feelings of nervousness, anxiety, and fear. Both disorders interfere with an individual’s everyday life for an extended period of time. Professional care combined with active engagement in self-management strategies can foster recovery and improve the wellbeing of people affected by these disorders, ultimately enabling them to lead happy and healthy lives.
