A New Test for Social Anxiety Disorder

A new internet test to tell if you have social anxiety disorder has been published here.

This is an unofficial instrument that will help you check on your social anxiety symptoms and how strong they are.  It is not an official diagnosis, as that must be done in person with a psychologist or psychiatrist.  Social anxiety disorder remains the third largest mental health care disorder, and this check will help you see if you have social anxiety and where you fit on the continuum of social anxiety disorder.

The Social Anxiety Institute carries the most comprehensive information on social anxiety -- social phobia -- on the internet.

Our History and Our Mission

The Anxiety Network began in 1995 due to growing demand from people around the world wanting help in understanding and overcoming their anxiety disorder.  The Anxiety and Stress Clinic and its website, The Anxiety Network, received so much traffic and requests for help that we found ourselves spending the majority of our time in international communication and outreach.  Our in-person anxiety clinic has grown tremendously, and our principal internet tool, The Anxiety Network, has been re-written and re-designed with focus on the major anxiety disorders.  

The Anxiety Network  focuses on three of the major anxiety disorders:  panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder,  and social anxiety disorder.

In 1997, The Social Anxiety Association, a non-profit organization, was formed and has its own website.

The Social Anxiety Institute, the largest site on the internet for information and treatment of social anxiety, has maintained an active website since 1998.  Continuous, ongoing therapy groups have helped hundreds of people overcome social anxiety since 1994.  Major changes in design will be occurring in 2014.
