Troubled by Anxiety? - 3rd April 2016

If feelings of anxiety seem overwhelming or interfere with every-day activities:

  • See your family doctor or nurse practitioner.
  • The next step may be talking to a mental health professional. Consider finding someone trained in cognitive-behavioral therapy who is also open to using medication if needed. You may need to try several medicines before finding the right one.
  • Consider joining a self-help or support group to share problems and achievements with others.
  • Stress management techniques and mindfulness meditation may help relieve anxiety symptoms.
