How Do Countries Other Than the U.S. Treat Panic Disorder With or Without Agoraphobia?

Question by Andy D: How do countries other than the U.S. treat panic disorder with or without agoraphobia?

I am trying to find information regarding how countries other than the United States treat panic disorders with or without agoraphobia–for example, Japan or Africa, Spain…basically wherever as long as it differs from the U.S. in some way. I’ve tried googling but have had no luck.

If you know, do you mind stating your source? I will have to cite it, as this is for a paper. I need to get a global perspective on this disorder.

Thank you!

In the U.K people tend to be pretty accommodating towards anxiety sufferers.
But the care from physicians leaves a lot to be desired, they tend to decide very quickly you need to see a counselor and most likely drugs of some sort.
In my experience with counselors they just pretty much read off a list of what they are supposed to tell you and the goals they are to set you. They never asked me anything about myself or how i was feeling. Just told me to gradually intergrate myself more in society…well duh!
