Involve Your Company or Organisation

The benefits of involving your company with Anxiety UK:

Chances are you or someone you know has been personally affected by anxiety. Whether that be a colleague who struggles with panic attacks, a family member who is paralysed by a phobia or your own difficulties with managing stress. You might even be a membership organisation who is hearing from an increasing amount of members struggling with anxiety and stress.

The fact is 15% of us are experiencing an anxiety related problem yet many of us find it difficult to make others understand.

Anxiety UK was established in 1970 by an anxiety sufferer and today still retains its original, user-led ethos. We are able to support those who are experiencing anxiety for the first time because we know what its like. We are the nation’s leading anxiety disorders charity, having helped over 1 million people since 1970.It is estimated that we help someone at their wits end every 14 minutes. We do this by:

  • Providing national helplines, staffed by people with lived experience of anxiety.
  • Providing access to therapy services to those who need support quickly and at a reduced cost to going privately.
  • Campaigning to raise anxiety awareness and reduce stigma.
