Royal College of Psychiatrists - Anxiety, Panic and Phobias

The Royal College of Psychiatrists is the professional and educational body for psychiatrists in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland.

The Royal College of Psychiatrists is committed to improving the understanding of psychiatry and mental health. They want there to be a greater understanding of the interaction between mental and physical health and the social and cultural context in which people live. They are at the forefront in setting and achieving the highest standards through education, training and research. They lead the way in developing excellence and promoting best practice in mental health services. They promote research and publish the results in their world-class psychiatric journals.

Anxiety is something we all feel it when they are in a situation that is threatening or difficult. The anxiety goes away when we have got used to the situation, when the situation changes, or when we leave the situation. If it just goes on and on, or if it happens out of the blue, or for no obvious reason, it can make life very difficult.

This leaflet deals with anxiety in general, and with three particular kinds of anxiety:

  • generalised anxiety disorder
  • panic attacks
  • phobias

It is for anyone for whom anxiety is a problem – but also for friends and relatives who may want to understand more about it.

When anxiety is a sudden response to an immediate threat, we call it fear. Both fear and anxiety can he helpful, helping people to avoid dangerous situations, making them alert and giving them the motivation to deal with problems. If the feelings become too strong, they can stop them from doing the things they want to and can make their lives miserable. A phobia is a fear of particular situations or things that are not dangerous and most people do not find troublesome.
