Anxiety or anxiety disorder due to migration

Everybody is afraid or anxious at times. It is a normal reaction that prepares us for imminent danger. This anxiety gradually disappears. When do we speak of an anxiety disorder? When your anxiety is virtually always present and interferes with your everyday functioning.

Anxiety disorder when migrating to another culture

A migration influences the occurrence and development of an anxiety disorder. For example, by living in an unknown culture with new and sometimes incomprehensible laws, rules and customs. You then feel that you cannot come to grips with your life in a new country. Or you continue longing for your country of origin. You feel you don't really belong anywhere. You feel you are left out.
