About:

Youth anxiety is common. Among 18 – 25-year old people, one in three (35%) reported feeling lonely on three or more times a week. Also, it has been found that higher levels of loneliness increase a young adult’s risk of developing depression by 12% and social anxiety by 10%.

When your worries are persistent or out of proportion to the reality of the threat and get in the way of you living a normal life, you may have an anxiety disorder. An example might be an excessive fear of a social or work situation.

 If your life feels like it is on a downward trajectory and you are struggling to cope, perhaps a support group might help. Our support group sessions offer sufferers and carers the opportunity to discuss their anxiety and help them learn how to deal with their fears, knowing they are not alone. The caring and sharing of the group offers relief from isolation and loneliness
