The connection between verbal abuse and anxiety is often overlooked. Harmful words are not the norm and we need to be careful with the things we say If Nigeria is to be ranked according to how well it understands and handles mental health issues like anxiety and depression, the country will appear at the foot of the ranking. Also, it appears everyone knows a thing or two about physical abuse. However, that has not stopped people from perpetrating the act. If this is the case, then it is even more pressing to highlight the connection between verbal abuse and anxiety no one talks about. Verbal abuse is subtler than its physical counterpart, its consequence less immediate but damaging and far-reaching nonetheless.  Thus, because of its nature, verbal abuse tends to be swept under the carpet more frequently.
