Anxiety disorders are the most common mental health conditions, with a high lifetime prevalence such that approximately one in three people will experience an anxiety disorder at some point in their life (Bandelow & Michaelis, 2015). Despite the high prevalence of anxiety disorders, they are often underrecognized and undertreated. Thus, the research programs of members of the Division of Anxiety to advance our understanding of anxiety and related disorders, including the development of new assessment and intervention methods, is of critical importance.
