The Anxiety and Depression Association of America Annual Conference is the premier professional meeting on the science and treatment of anxiety disorders, OCD, PTSD, and depression in children and adults.
The conference goal includes leveraging its broad audience to synthesize cutting-edge knowledge, accelerate dissemination, and translate scientific evidence to practice by engaging clinicians.
Anxiety helps us get out of harm’s way and prepare for important events, and it warns us when we need to take action.
But you may experience anxiety that is persistent, seemingly uncontrollable, and overwhelming. If it’s an excessive, irrational dread of everyday situations, it can be disabling. When anxiety interferes with daily activities, you may have an anxiety disorder.
