According to one study, one million Scots suffer from anxiety which grips their daily lives

According to research, over one million adults across Scotland have been prevented from going about their daily lives due to anxiety levels.

The new study, led by the Mental Health Foundation, has found that a huge number of Scots face levels of anxiety that interfere with their lives, with 70% of adults across the county reported to have suffered from anxiety at some point.

The research, which surveyed 1,000 adults across Scotland, also suggested that as many as 58% of adults across Scotland have experienced levels of anxiety impacting their daily lives in the past two weeks.

The study findings mark the start of Mental Health Awareness Week from 15-21 May, with the charity sounding the alarm about the impact of anxiety on adults across Scotland.

As many as 27% of adults said they experienced anxiety to the extent that it prevented them from doing what they wanted or needed to do most or all of the time in the previous two weeks.

Anxiety is very common, but more than four in 10 (44%) keep their anxious thoughts and feelings a secret, suggesting that a huge number of people feel uncomfortable sharing their experiences and discussing their mental health personal.

It was also found that around one in five adults (21%) felt anxious most or all of the time, with 30% saying they did not cope well with feelings of anxiety.
