Panic Disorder involves individuals having sudden and repeated attacks of fear that can last for several minutes or longer. These are called panic attacks. This kind of attack is characterized by a fear of disaster or losing control of something that does not present or has any real danger. A person may also have strong physical reactions during a panic attack. They may have symptoms of having a heart attack. Panic attacks can occur at any time and many people with panic disorder keep worrying about the possibility of having another attack unexpectedly. A person with a panic disorder may become discouraged and feel ashamed because they cannot carry through normal day-to-day routines, which include going to work, school, and running errands like going to the grocery store and driving.

Unitas is a voluntary not-for-profit behavioral health and primary care clinic licensed by the NYS Office of OMH, the office of OASAS, and via the DSRIP Project 3.a.i, can provide primary care services. It was first organized by Dr. Roman Pabis in 1983 as an Outpatient Mental Health Clinic certified by the New York State Office of Mental Health (OMH), specifically for Polish and other East European Slavic persons. A few years later, to meet the demand, a chemical dependency program was added that is certified by the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS). Most recently Unitas added physical health to the services it can provide to the communities of New York City.
