An exciting partnership between Anxiety UK and the Anxiety and Depression Association of America launches today!
Here at Anxiety UK, we have long recognised the value of working with other organisations to pursue a common goal. Today we are delighted to announce the launch of a brand new partnership with the Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA).
This is a wonderful addition to the growing number of partnerships that Anxiety UK has established over the years with other like-minded, respected organisations determined to improve the lives of those living with anxiety, stress and anxiety based depression through provision of high quality services, campaigning and information.
ADAA is an international non-profit organisation and a leader in education, training, and research for anxiety, OCD, PTSD, depression, and related disorders. We believe that by working together, both Anxiety UK and ADAA have the potential to achieve far more than we could alone. Put simply, this is a partnership that enhances the common mission of both organisations to help individuals and their families who are affected by anxiety and depression, as well as support the professionals who provide direct services. For example, Anxiety UK’s national networks of Anxiety UK Approved Therapists.
Through this association both organisations will benefit from an open channel of communication, sharing experiences and knowledge of best practice, while opening new avenues of mutual possibility.
Furthermore, our collaboration with ADAA presents an exciting opportunity for our Anxiety UK Approved Therapists, who will have the option of signing up for a specially tailored membership plan. This will support Continuing Professional Development via access to online interest groups, conferences and resources.
Nicky Lidbetter, CEO of Anxiety UK said: “As it is the case that we now all operate in a global manner because of the internet, it absolutely makes sense that like-minded organisations should collaborate more so as to double our efforts to support those with anxiety, stress and anxiety based depression. Both Anxiety UK and the ADAA have long track records of providing such support and the opportunity to combine such expertise through this partnership, is something I particularly welcome”.
Susan Gurley, ADAA Executive Director explains that “ADAA is delighted to be partnering with Anxiety UK. Mental health issues have no borders and we are excited to be collaborating with our colleagues in the United Kingdom to learn about their country’s best practices. This is a wonderful opportunity to share knowledge and our combined resources to support both with our consumer as well as our professional communities.”
