Panic attacks can be overcome – Mental Health Minute

High levels of anxiety have been reported around the world the past few months.  Sturgeon Bay Psychologist Dr. Dennis White compares the symptoms of a panic attack to those suffering a heart attack.   Panic attacks are extreme forms of anxiety where one’s body and mind reacts like there is immediate danger when there is none.  People staying at home out of fear of contracting the coronavirus can be a form of panic, according to Dr. White.  He says panic, and other forms of anxiety that may be incapacitating, can be overcome.

 

 

Dr. White adds that if self-help does not work, many forms of professional treatments have been found effective.  He notes the most common are medication, behavioral therapy, and psychotherapy.  You can listen to Dr. White’s entire Mental Health Minute below.
