Mission
Our mission is to promote the prevention, treatment, and cure of anxiety, depression, and stress-related disorders through education, practice, and research.
Program Description
ADAA was founded in 1980 as the Phobia Society of America by a diverse group of clinicians and patients. The term "anxiety disorder" had not yet been coined. Most anxiety disorders were simply called phobias. That changed as researchers discovered links between panic attacks and abnormal blood flow in the brain, learned that anxiety disorders are associated with pervasive social and health consequences, and discovered and tested various therapies and medications to treat anxiety disorders.
