WayAhead’s Newcastle (Uni) Anxiety Support Groups are run in three locations on the campuses of Newcastle University during term time. They do not run during the holidays.
Please note, these groups are for members of the Newcastle University community. This includes students, staff, friends and families. Please see the bottom of the page for other groups nearby.
Our groups are usually comprised of a small number of people who come together to share personal experiences and information in a safe, friendly and supportive environment.
All WayAhead support groups are free of charge and there is no need to book attendance.

IMPORTANT – These are not treatment groups. They are places where people who are impacted by anxiety can give and receive support related to living with and managing their anxiety. They are facilitated by trained volunteers who have a diverse range of experiences but who are not qualified health professionals. As such, these groups are not suitable for people with high levels of mental distress which may be associated with psychosis, severe depression or active post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). We recommend that you do not attend these groups if you are experiencing high levels of distress as it is unlikely that they will able to meet your needs.
For more information, or to discuss whether these groups are suitable for you, please call 02 9339 6013 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
