Adults will deal with a mental health issue like anxiety or depression throughout their lives 

The organization also states that an estimated that 8.4% of all U.S. adults suffered with at least one major depressive episode in 2020 alone

Forty million adults deal with some form of anxiety each year in the United States, the ADAA says 

While these are two common mental health issues that people battle individually, they are also things that can occur simultaneously 

Anxiety and depression are both mental health problems that can have a profound impact on a person's life and their ability to function 

"Anxiety is characterized by feelings of worry, nervousness and fear," Brandon explains. 

"Depression, on the other hand, is characterized by feelings of sadness, hopelessness and worthlessness." 

Anxiety is often thought of as struggling with anticipating the future, and depression is thought of as looking back to the past
