Video Description

"1.2% of the adult population in Singapore suffer from Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD) at some time in their lifetime. The essential feature of GAD is a general feeling of excessive anxiety and worry that is difficult to control. These feelings are not related to any specific event or object but may be about a number of events and activities. They are often accompanied by other symptoms like restlessness, fatigue, irritability, or disturbed sleep. GAD can be chronic and recurrent in nature, impair family life, and reduces social adjustment and functioning. Typically, GAD develops over a period of time and may not be noticed until it is significant enough to cause problems with functioning. Learn more about GAD in this video.
