There is an attempt, a progress or reintegration taking place found in small pockets of modern medicine. Some of our national health systems are looking at it, but not near enough now. 
 
Sure. There are things that don't require a mental health therapist. You accidentally break your leg and you need a cast and maybe physical therapy. No mental health professional required.
 
But for mind and body problems, maybe there should be a stronger connection and support system. 
 
This would require a far better health system than we have in the United States of America. I cannot speak to other places.
 
I know other countries they have non-toxic accessible physical health care systems.
 
I don't know if that's the same for mental health, so let's go on and get to it. 
 
So after you get your confirmation that you have a medically diagnosed anxiety conditioner disorder, you have a lot of information and decisions to make.
 
What are you supposed to do? 
 
And what can you do?
 

Resources Mentioned: 

To learn about the types of medications that are currently prescribed by doctors you can visit the consumer version of Merck Manuals.
 
To find non-medical ways of treatment, Helpguide.org has an information page about anxiety conditions. Their orientation is non-medical first, medicine only if it is truly warranted.
 
If you have decided that medication is an option for you but you are having trouble locating a psychiatrist there is a service called Cerebral
 
The service a medication dispensing service that connects you to a doctor and a person that will monitor your progress. Cerebral works as a stand alone consumer service or you might be able to use it as part of your insurance plan. 
 
This is currently a U.S. only vendor at the moment. Cerebral also has a therapy only option, you can check out the FAQ on the vendor's website.
