Who Are We?
As you may be aware, there is an increased stigma attached to being labelled ‘mentally ill’ in the Asian community. Who wants to be known as a ‘pagal’, and shunned by one’s friends and one’s social circle? It is time that something was done to combat this. Destigmatize is a project of ANXIETY UK and aim to provide a network of support for sufferers of anxiety disorders.
Look under our ‘get help’ section and you shall see a variety of fact sheets available for download and purchase in English, Urdu, Punjabi and Hindi.
You can also become a member of ANXIETY UK, and in doing so, access our wide range of services, including fact sheets, CBT and clinical hypnosis to combat anxiety disorders. Visit www.anxietyuk.org.uk for more information.
As the interest in destigmatize.org.uk grows, we shall endeavour to add further fact sheets and information to the site. Please feel free to tell your friends and fellow sufferers about this project. Only by working together can we create this movement that is so long overdue.
