Anxiety Support Groups NSW
WayAhead runs monthly Anxiety and OCD Support Groups across NSW. A Support Group is a non-judgemental place for people with anxiety, and or their family and friends to meet. Our support groups are for people with anxiety disorders such as generalised anxiety disorder, social phobia, panic attacks / disorder, agoraphobia, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), and/or specific phobias.

Anxiety Support Groups VIC
ARCVic run support groups for a range of different Anxiety Disorders as well as specific groups like Social Anxiety, Trichotillomania, Hoarding, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Support Groups provide an opportunity for people to help one another, understand their anxiety disorder and the recovery process.
We have produced this educational material to explain what Obsessive Compulsive Order (OCD) is. This may help for someone who has OCD or their carers to recognise the symptoms and seek help. It may also help to stop people using the label “OCD” incorrectly and inappropriately. You can download and print these posters.
