Thirty-five years ago, anxiety didn't exist as a diagnostic category. Today, it's the most common form of mental illness. Drawing on his own long-standing battle with anxiety, Scott Stossel, My Age of Anxiety: Fear, Hope, Dread, and the Search for Peace of Mind presents the history and efforts to understand an affliction that is pervasive yet often misunderstood.

We thank The Anxiety and Depression Association of America for their support of the program. Support their mission to promote the prevention, treatment, and cure of anxiety, depression, and stress-related disorders through education, practice, and research.

"It's a misfiring fight or flight response - that is, either there's nothing truly to be afraid of or, your response is disproportionate to the threat at hand. And you end up marinating in a stew of stress hormones that makes you feel physically and cognitively awful." -Scott Stossel
