    NEW YORK, April 18 /PRNewswire/ -- What do Donny Osmond, Naomi Judd and
 football great Earl Campell have in common?  They have all suffered from an
 anxiety disorder; real, treatable, medical illnesses.  Anxiety disorders
 affect 19 million Americans each year. Anxiety disorders are a major
 healthcare problem in the United States, costing the economy more than
 $47 billion annually.
     Do you find yourself constantly worrying, afraid in social situations,
 feeling sad, or having difficulty sleeping and concentrating?  Worrying and
 experiencing anxiety is normal, but when the feelings become intense, or
 interfere with normal daily functioning, it may be an anxiety and/or
 depressive disorder.
     "Anxiety and depressive disorders are very common medical illnesses that
 cause many Americans tremendous suffering," said Mary Guardino, founder of
 National Anxiety Disorders Screening Project.  "The goal of the screening day
 is to educate people about these disorders and to help people access the
 treatment they need. Treatment does work, and people need to know that they
 don't have to feel so bad."
     To help individuals learn about anxiety and depressive disorders, their
 symptoms and effective treatments a free program and screening will be held at
 healthcare facilities throughout the United States, on May 2, 2001 as part of
 National Anxiety Disorders Screening Day. This program includes viewing a
 video, receiving information about anxiety disorders and depression,
 completing a screening questionnaire, a confidential meeting with a mental
 health professional, and receiving a referral if necessary.
     National Anxiety Disorders Screening Day is sponsored by American
 Psychiatric Association, American Psychological Association, Anxiety Disorders
 Association of America, Freedom From Fear, National Institute of Mental
