Anxiety disorders are considered the most common and earliest occurring mental disorders. They are associated with social, academic, and occupational impairment in childhood, and increased risk of a range of mental health problems throughout development and into adulthood. This chapter examines the prevalence, correlates, risk factors, continuity/outcomes, and treatment of specific phobia, generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, separation anxiety disorder, social phobia, and obsessive–compulsive disorder over the life course. Also discussed are the implications of a life course approach on the epidemiology of anxiety disorders for clinical work, public health, and future research.

Keywords:   anxiety disorder, panic, separation anxiety disorder, phobia, obsessive–compulsive disorder, life course epidemiology, risk factors
