Question: What do I do if a friend or family member appears to have an anxiety disorder?
Answer: If you're concerned that someone you know has an anxiety disorder, it's best to refer them to a qualified mental health professional. A primary care physician certainly could make a preliminary assessment of whether an individual has an anxiety disorder or not and likely then would refer the individual to a mental health professional. But the determination of an anxiety disorder is not something that a lay person should attempt to do.
