“Now is the age of anxiety” (WH Auden. The age of anxiety: a baroque eclogue. Random House, New York 1947).
Although this text has won the Pulitzer Prize more than 60 years ago, it is still highly valid. Anxiety disorders have the highest lifetime prevalence (14-29%) and the earliest age of onset (11 years) of psychiatric diseases, thereby imposing an ever-increasing strain on health providers and burden on the economy.
