Treatment Phobias are one of the most common mental illnesses in the United States. Women are more likely to experience phobias than men.

The American Psychiatric Association identifies three different categories of phobias: social phobias, agoraphobia, and specific phobias. As you may notice while you browse through this list, most specific phobias fall into one of four major categories: fears of the natural environment, fears related to animals, fear related to medical treatments or issues, and fears related to specific situations.
