United Stress Disorders Association Objectives
 

“It has often been said that we live in an age of anxiety, this despite
 the fact that the standard of living of the population of the developed world is at a level never before attained. Given the fact that famine and pestilence have been largely overcome in the industrialized world, it is strange that anxiety is so prevalent. That is not to say that developed societies are free of illnesses, but epidemics of the past wiped out large portions of the population where today this is now rare. However, even with these apparent accomplishments, some 20 million American adults live with an anxiety disorder that is chronic, painful and which can become progressively worse. We can speculate that evolution has prepared us for starvation and pestilence, but it has not prepared us for the stresses of contemporary modern life. The stresses we face today are the results of a complex environment and culture. Stresses such as overcrowding, competitiveness and the loss of communal supports may well contribute to why so many people suffer from anxiety.” Robert Cancro, MD
Director of the International Committee Against Mental Illness and Chairman Emeritus of NYU Langone’s Department of Psychiatry
The incidence of anxiety disorders, including PTSD, has reached epidemic levels. Many people suffer from PTSD due to traumatic experiences including war, terrorism, natural disasters, domestic abuse, among others. The United Stress Disorders Association recognizes the need to intervene since the incidence of PTSD has grown exponentially around the world. People need to be educated as to the symptoms of PTSD and other anxiety disorders so they will know if they or a loved one should pursue treatment. How can you get better if you don’t realize you have a treatable problem? The United Stress Disorders Association (USDA), division of ICAMI, has been created to raise awareness of anxiety disorders, for those who suffer, and direct them effectively on the road to recovery.

The Association expects to pursue several initiatives:

* Education and Prevention: According to the World Health Organization, four out of the five leading causes of disability days in the world are psychiatric in nature, including alcoholism, substance abuse, schizophrenia, and depression, and the fifth cause is AIDS. AIDS receives more financial support than all the other four causes combined! Clearly, the public has to be educated as to the epidemic level mental illness has reached. Mental illness must be given the attention it deserves since the numbers who suffer from mental illnesses has increased exponentia
The Association for Stress Disorders (ASD) plans to advocate for mental healthdisorders using research, advocacy and educational outreach through press,special events and film documentaries.
* Advocacy: A short documentary (:20 - :30 minutes in length) will be produced on the topic of anxiety disorders, including PTSD, and the signs for those who are at risk, for example, returning veterans, children and spouses from families of abuse, the elderly, those who experienced traumatic events out of their control, e.g. 9/11 and other terrorist acts around the world, natural disasters, war, etc. As you can imagine the number of people who have been effected, in recent years, is dramatic. Robert Cancro, MD, Chairman Emeritus of NYU Langone’s Department of Psychiatry, will be at the helm of writing and narrating this documentary.
Research: Research will be implemented using alternative modalities of treatment, e.g. the cranial stimulator (www.fisherwallace.com), etc. The ASD will raise awareness of non-drug treatment devices being utilized for alternative treatment interventions. The ASD has been collaborating with the Fisher Wallace group for almost two years now and treatment results with this device have been very impressive. Psychopharmacologic treatment would be employed if necessary.
Intervention and Recovery: The pharmaceutical industry has focused exclusively on the development of medications for the short term relief of anxiety while not dealing with the underlying imbalance. We wish to help develop and test life style changes which can bring the person back to a better balance, utilizing a variety of techniques, breathing, meditation, self-hypnosis, biofeedback, and other holistic medical methods for relaxation. Studies have been implemented showing the profoundly positive effect meditation has on the brain. The ASD will not only participate in further research related to the effectiveness of meditation but inform the public of its results
