Anxiety Disorders and Aboriginal Peoples in Canada: The Current State of Knowledge and Directions for Future Research
Bellamy, S & Hardy, C. (2015). National Collaborating Centre For Aboriginal Health.

In Anxiety Disorders and Aboriginal Peoples in Canada, the authors examine the limited research of anxiety disorders among Indigenous peoples of Canada and the importance of having a clear understanding of its affects. Research on anxiety disorders among Western populations have identified an occurrence rate of “one in four Canadians aged 15 year or older” with women having a “higher prevalence rate and twice as likely as men to experience an anxiety disorder”. Research among Indigenous populations are inconsistent. There are a “limited number of studies that have yielded mixed results”. Some studies have identified a “higher” rate among Aboriginal peoples while others have found “lower or similar rates” in comparison to Western peoples.

To address this gap in the research the authors begin the paper by summarizing the prevalence of anxiety disorders in Western and Aboriginal populations. They proceed to discuss models of mental health and wellness and the differences between Aboriginal and Western cultures. They explain prevalence rates of anxiety disorders among children, risks factors, the lasting effect of colonization, prevention programs, the correlation of anxiety and alcohol use, and co-occurrence of anxiety and depression. Lastly, the authors discuss the identification of resilience factors in Aboriginal populations, and the assessment, diagnosis and treatment for Indigenous people.
