Are you going to take part?
To help people become more educated about mental health, if we could speak to one person this week about how we feel and how anxiety can affect us, then we are all breaking the barriers down. Anxiety can affect anyone of us so it is nothing to be ashamed of.
Or maybe you can take that big step of picking up the phone and speaking to one of our helpliners about your anxiety, join a Recovery Group or our one-to-one Mentor Service to take your first steps to try to recover. Maybe you could set a small goal, nothing overwhelming. It helps if you have confidence in your breathing and use relaxation techniques. With practice they really do work and this means you are in control of your anxiety. When we achieve something, it doesn’t have to be something big, but it gives us a wonderful feeling that we can beat anxiety.
