While some environmental factors and life events appear to be both depressogenic and anxiogenic, precipitating mixed episodes of anxiety and depression, others are relatively specific in their impact. 120,123 Figure 11 Genetic link of GAD with depression.

54 Thus in addition to the direct cost of treatment there is often costly and inappropriate utilisation of health resources. 55 Of these, 40% had a life history of GAD, 22% had GAD as a current diagnosis, of which 9% had ‘pure’ GAD. Thus the bulk of the cost relating to GAD does not involve its treatment, but relates to the impairment that is secondary to the condition. It is tempting to hypothesize that, with more accurate diagnosis and effective treatment, the overall cost of the illness would fall sharply.

24 There has been no research into the economic cost of GAD specifically, although there has been research into the cost of the anxiety disorders as a whole. 52 Anxiety disorders are common, and it is estimated that they consume over 30% of mental health costs in the USA. If costs are proportionately attributed to diagnosis according to prevalence, then it would be predicted that GAD consumes nearly 6% of the mental health budget. In fact, this is probably an overestimate for two reasons. g. obsessive-compulsive disorder.
