YOU are not alone!

Most people feel anxiety from time to time. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, about 18% of adults and 8% of adolescents in the U.S. have an anxiety disorder. It’s likely you’ve felt worried or fearful about things. Maybe concerned about performing well at work, getting a new job, public speaking, or taking an exam. But when worries become overwhelming and interfere with activities, it may be time to seek support.

Anyone – regardless of their race, gender, or socioeconomic status – can experience an anxiety disorder. However, anxiety is very treatable and with professional support, you can experience positive changes.

Changing behaviors, thoughts, and reactions can help you feel more comfortable in stressful situations. To help manage or diminish anxiety symptoms try exercising, change your nutrition, stress reduction activities, sleep, and reconnecting with your social support. These are some of the many key actions to maintain your emotional health and well-being.
