Completing everyday tasks can be challenging for someone with agoraphobia. Agoraphobia is an anxiety disorder that is characterized by a fear of public places or situations where escape is difficult. While the exact cause of agoraphobia is unknown, other co-occurring anxiety disorders, traumatic experiences and addictions can contribute to the development of agoraphobia.
Are you one of the 1.8 million people living with agoraphobia each year? If you suspect that you or a loved one may be exhibiting symptoms of agoraphobia, take an agoraphobia self-assessment.
