Phobias and mental health

A phobia is an extreme fear or anxiety which can be triggered by a number of factors, including a particular situation (being in crowds), or an object (germs), even when these factors don’t present a real danger.

Someone who has a phobia may even start to feel anxiety by just thinking or talking about it.

Everyone experiences fear but it becomes a phobia when that fear is out of proportion to the danger or if it has a significant impact on how someone lives their day to day life.
