Anxiety disorders have a great impact in a patient's environment. Organizing this environment through Caregiving Social Networks (CSNs) offers an important assistance to a patient's treatment and improves the quality of life of its members. The medical practice of anxiety disorders' treatment is presented, based on which the CSN is established. An abstract structure and indicative roles for the CSN's players are further illustrated which may vary depending on several factors. Finally, a case scenario is provided, showing that a CSN is adequate to support patients with anxiety disorders. CSNs offer important advantages not only to the treatment itself, but both to the patients and their environment.
