Hidden anxiety is not actually a clinical term. Hidden anxiety refers more to symptoms of anxiety that are underlooked in the DSM.

The purpose of this video is to raise awareness on less common signs of anxiety that people may not notice. Someone with or without an official diagnosis of anxiety disorder may still experience these symptoms.

Do you have a friend or know someone who may be experiencing signs of anxiety that are hard to pick up?

Disclaimer: Do not use this video to self-diagnose yourself or someone else. To receive a proper diagnosis, a professional is recommended.

You can, however, use this video as a guide when explaining your symptoms to your doctors. According to the American Psychological Association, people with anxiety have a future-oriented fear which leads them to avoid anything that could potentially trigger a stress response.

In 2017, the National Institute of Mental Health reported that approximately 40 million people worldwide suffer from anxiety.

Anxiety disorders are highly treatable, but recent surveys show that only 36.9% of those suffering from them seek treatment.

This might be because most people with anxiety worry about the judgment of others and how the stigma against mental illness might negatively affect their lives. Does this sound familiar to you?
