Social Anxiety Disorder (also known as Social Phobia) is characterised by intense fear of scrutiny by others, especially during performance - such as public speaking, or in general (meeting new people for the first time, eating in public, talking on the phone when others are present, writing in front of others, and so on). This condition has historically been underrecognised in primary care practice, with patients often presenting for treatment only after the onset of complications such as major depression or substance abuse disorders.
