Understanding Anxiety booklet launched by Anxiety UK

February 1st, 2013

A new resource to help guide sufferers through the mystery of anxiety and provide them with a greater understanding of what anxiety really is.

Written by Anxiety UK’s CEO, Nicky Lidbetter, the guide has been developed alongside input from a wide range of Anxiety UK members, volunteers and clinical advisors.

The booklet is packed full of useful information, including tips from others affected by anxiety, treatment options and much more.

Anxiety UK CEO Nicky Lidbetter says: “Anxiety is the common thread which links all anxiety disorders from agoraphobia to obsessive compulsive disorder.

“The key to learning to live with any anxiety-related condition is to develop ways of coping and acceptance, hard though this may appear at times.

“It can only be achieved with an understanding of what anxiety is and how it affects you as an individual.”

The new guide has already received widespread acclaim from users and partners alike.

Julian Stanley, Chief Executive of Teacher Support Network, said: “This is an extremely helpful guide for anyone wanting to know more about anxiety. It is easy to follow, and the management and treatment sections are particularly informative. The case studies show the impact that anxiety can have on an individual’s life.

“We are delighted that through our partnership with Anxiety UK, we can offer teachers such a beneficial resource. We know that this will help many teachers and their families make sense of what they are going through.”
