What is Anxiety?

A state of mental discomfort, often accompanied by distressing thoughts and worries, and physical feelings of tension and discomfort. Anxiety takes many forms and can focus on a wide variety of issues. The main element is that it is uncomfortable and evokes a sense of threat or risk to one's safety or level of comfort. These feelings can apply to personal safety, security of intimate relationships and desired future outcomes. Some degree of anxiety is a normal part of being human. In its more extreme forms, anxiety can develop into an ‘anxiety disorder’; a relatively common form of mental illness where anxiety is especially strong and/or persistent. In these cases, treatment by pharmacological interventions or with psychotherapy is recommended. Anxiety is also connected to other diagnoses such as depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder and addiction. In these cases, treatment is recommended as well.

Specialized Programs

Homewood Ravensview offers specialized anxiety programming for: adults, first responders and military, executives and professionals, young adults, and additional support for the families of those affected by anxiety. Each program has been meticulously developed with each audience in mind, including the specific challenges and obstacles they may face on their journey to recovery.

Within the Cornerstone Program for adults, anxiety is a very common issue. Many clients at Ravensview seek treatment for different forms of anxiety and we use the best evidence-based assessments to produce a profile of each individual’s anxiety. Anxiety treatment is provided and individualized for each patient.

Like other treatment participants, many first responders and military personnel come to treatment with anxiety. What’s unique about first responders and military veterans is that their anxiety is often, understandably, linked to stressful occupational experiences. In the Guardians Program, treatment of anxiety uses evidence-based practices like cognitive behavioural therapy and dialectical behaviour therapy, which targets the anxiety patterns which may have emerged from experiences in both their work and personal lives.

Young adults often experience anxiety, which comes from their life experiences and from their stage in life: they are starting to plan and prepare for the future, which can be a daunting task. Within the My Path Program for young adults, we help target and resolve the client’s anxiety, with the understanding that some of these anxieties come from the past, and some of these anxieties are about the future.

Because executives and professionals achieve at a high level, they face high levels of stress and obligation. The Vanguard Program at Ravensview uses concrete and specific methods to help executives and professionals tackle their anxiety. The program focuses on skills-building, which gives the client skills and tools they can use to manage their anxieties in day-to-day life and achieve their highest potential.
