About Anxiety forums

  • Anxiety is something we can all feel, at times. However, some people face significant impact in their lives because of anxiety.
  • Our Let’s Talk Anxiety forums raise awareness of anxiety disorders, destigmatise the conversation about anxiety and encourage people to seek help.
  • The forums are an opportunity for people to come together in their community, learn more about anxiety and connect with their local Mental Health services.
