Despite affecting 1 in 5 people on a daily basis, many people living with anxiety are simply told to ‘snap out of it.’ Anyone who has lived with anxiety will know it is much more difficult than that.
In a 2010 Anxiety UK survey, 55% of respondents revealed that they did not feel comfortable telling others about their anxiety. Hiding anxiety can lead to increased isolation, resulting in prolonged suffering and delayed help.
Anxiety UK is the nation’s leading anxiety disorders charity, having helped more than 1 million people since 1970. It is estimated that Anxiety UK helps someone at their wits end every 14 minutes.
