More people suffer from anxiety disorders (including OCD) than any other mental illness; these disorders are the sixth leading cause of global disability, according to the World Health Organization. Helen Blair Simpson, MD, PhD, Professor of Psychiatry at Columbia University Medical Center and Director of the Anxiety Disorders Clinic at the New York State Psychiatric Institute, will describe how the latest neuroscience is transforming our understanding of and treatments for anxiety and OCD, offering new hope in the face of fear.
