Anxiety is a prevalent problem in our society, and it negatively affects many adults in the United States every year. The National Health Survey, which was conducted in 2019, found that 15.6% of adults experienced anxiety symptoms within the past two weeks of when the survey was given (Terlizzi & Villarroel, 2019). That means that approximately 1 in 6 adults aged 18 and over in the United States are experiencing psychological impairment.

This presentation will focus on the role of gender and how it affects anxiety, and if one gender is more likely to experience anxiety than the other gender.
