Anxiety disorders and psychological distress

Published on :

On the occasion of the Congress of the Encephalon which is held from January 19 to 21 at the Palais des Congrès in Paris, we are talking about anxiety disorders.

If anxiety is a normal feeling of worry, anxiety, it can become disabling by becoming chronic. Frequent, anxiety disorders would affect approximately, each year, 2 to 8% of the adult population. Among these disorders, psychic distress stands out, which can prevent action or even lead to making bad decisions. How to identify these anxiety disorders? What support is there?

  • Dr. Antoine Lesur, psychiatrist, specialist in anxiety disorders and depression. Member of CNQSP (National College for the Quality of Psychiatric Care). Author of the book Psychic distress, a new approach to care, published by Odile Jacob
  • Dr Mariama Barry, psychiatrist at the CHU Donka, in Conakry and in charge of the Mental Health Unit at the level of the Ministry of Health of Guinea.

At the end of the program, we take stock of the Centenary of the Overseas Academy of Sciences (ASOM). We talk about it with the Professor Jean-Philippe Chippaux, Emeritus Research Director at theResearch Institute for Development in Paris.
