I know it certainly played a part in mine. I attribute my first anxiety attack ever to the catholic school I was brought up in. I'll never forget feeling anxious at the idea of people knowing that I never really understood/believed what was being crammed down my throat. To each their own- I think it totally depends on the person. But religion has done nothing but negatively affect me in just about every aspect of my life.
