Mount Sinai Health Partners Mind Matters ECHO: Barriers to Screening for Anxiety: Effective Solutions for Proactive Anxiety Management

Dr. Bruce Chung shares the case of a 50-year-old patient with a diagnosis of generalized anxiety disorder and a history of childhood and adult trauma. Dr. Chung seeks diagnostic clarification, pharmacological consultation, and support identifying appropriate behavioral health and psychosocial referrals. He also raises the question of whether a family physician is the most appropriate provider to manage this patient’s anxiety over a long period of time. Dr. Vanessa Litoff then discusses screening for anxiety, focusing particularly on panic disorder and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). She explains barriers to screening for anxiety, common screening tools, symptomatology, and patient and physician resources.
