What is High-Functioning Anxiety?

High-functioning anxiety is an often overlooked mental health condition that affects countless Black women. It is characterized by excessive worry, perfectionism, and pressure to overachieve. While you may appear successful and put together on the outside, internally, you may be struggling with intense inner turmoil and an overwhelming sense of pressure.

More broadly, high functioning anxiety is a term used to describe people who experience anxiety symptoms while still managing to maintain a high level of functionality in various aspects of their lives. This means that they may be successful in their careers, relationships, and other activities, but they are internally struggling with persistent feelings of stress, self-doubt, and the fear of not measuring up.

People with high-functioning anxiety may have a variety of symptoms, including:

They may also be perfectionists, overachievers, and highly organized. They may also be very, sometimes overly, helpful and accommodating out of fear of letting others down or to help themselves feel more secure.

High functioning anxiety can be difficult to identify, both for the person experiencing it and for others. This is because people with high functioning anxiety are often skilled at concealing their symptoms. However, it is important to seek professional help if you think you may have high-functioning anxiety.

If you are struggling with high-functioning anxiety, please know that you are not alone. There is help available, and you can learn to manage your symptoms and live a full and meaningful life.

Holistic Approach to Healing | How Dr. Hypolite Can Help

Dr. Hypolite is a preventive and integrative, Black woman psychiatrist. She differs from most psychiatrists, in that she specializes in working with clients who have subclinical depression and anxiety. She does not wait for people to develop impairing mental health illness, and she believes in intervening sooner.

Dr. Hypolite believes that it is not wise and frankly does not make sense to wait to treat depression until it gets clinical and causes significant impairment. Once impairment occurs, more costly and in many cases, higher risk treatment is needed in order to relieve symptoms. Dr. Hypolite’s services are designed with this in mind.

Dr. Hypolite understands the unique challenges that high achieving Black women face, from the pressure to be a superwoman to the stigma surrounding mental health in the Black community.
