Mental Health Monday: People with Anxiety perceive the world in a fundamentally different way

Readers,

According to a recent publication in Current Biology, people with anxiety have atypical brain structure which causes them to develop anxiety. It has to do with how the brain handles new information and experiences. Those with anxiety’s brain over generalize experiences, no matter the type of emotional experience. This means when the brain is or should be making new pathways, its ability to make new connections from experiences do not always function properly. The brain cannot always tell the difference between positive or negative experiences; hence the over generalization issue leading to anxiety.

Most importantly, researchers noted, this reaction is not something that an anxious individual can control, because it’s a fundamental brain difference.

Mental illness, despite stigma, is not the fault of the person themselves. It is how they were born.
