Date:5/21/2008

ARLINGTON, Va. and SILVER SPRING, Md., May 21 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Anxiety Disorders Association of America (ADAA) (http://www.adaa.org) and The HealthCentral Network (http://www.HealthCentral.com) today announced that ADAA will join HealthCentral's growing community of patients, caregivers, advocates and health experts dedicated to helping people suffering from anxiety disorders get the information, advice and support they need to cope with the condition.

ADAA will produce a regular blog for HealthCentral's AnxietyConnection.com, a site devoted to helping patients and caregivers manage anxiety disorders. Additional joint projects, including video interviews with ADAA experts and development of new features that help patients cope with specific phobias, social anxiety disorder, and obsessive-compulsive disorder, are also planned.

Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illnesses in the U.S., affecting 40 million adults in the U.S. age 18 and older. ADAA, a national nonprofit organization, is solely dedicated to informing the public, health care professionals, the media, and legislators that anxiety disorders are real, serious, and treatable. For nearly 30 years, ADAA has been leading the way to improve research, education, and treatment for anxiety disorders. Members of the ADAA Scientific and Clinical Advisory Boards will contribute to the blog, which will feature information about anxiety disorders, including treatment options, new research, and how to find help.

"HealthCentral is very pleased to offer greater visibility for ADAA's wealth of expertise about identifying and managing anxiety symptoms," said Chris Schroeder. "The timing of this relationship coincides with national Mental Health Month, and we look forward to sharing ADAA's insights behind the research headlines for these treatable conditions."

"HealthCentral's emphasis on the patient's perspective makes it a great fit for an online collaboration, as people reach for support on AnxietyConnection.com," said Jerilyn Ross, MA, LICSW, ADAA President and CEO. "This blog will advance our mission to serve those suffering from an anxiety disorder and encourage them to seek help."
