It's Mental Health Awareness Week, this year focusing on Anxiety

Date Added: 15/05/2023

Anxiety is a normal emotion in us all, but sometimes it can get out of control and become a mental health problem.

A quarter of adults said they felt so anxious that it stopped them from doing the things they want to do some or all of the time. Six in ten adults feel this way, at least some of the time. On a positive note, anxiety can be made easier to manage.

This year we are joining in to raise awareness and understanding of the impact of anxiety on mental wellbeing, and to provide information on some things that can help prevent it from becoming a problem.

Get involved by sharing your experiences and let's explore possible solutions.




Understanding Anxiety

Are you feeling worried, tense, or nervous?

You may be experiencing anxiety. Anxiety is a natural human response when we feel that we are under threat. It can become a mental health problem if it impacts your ability to live your life as fully as you want to.

Anxiety can manifest in many ways.

Some common effects are excessive worrying, fear of social situations, panic attacks, and more. It's important to recognize the symptoms and seek help if needed.  Remember, it's okay to ask for help!

There are many factors that can contribute to anxiety.

Some factors include genetics, environment, and life experiences. Understanding the underlying causes of your feelings of anxiety can help you manage your wellbeing more effectively.

Managing anxiety is possible.

Some helpful strategies include practicing relaxation techniques, exercising, eating a healthy diet, and getting enough sleep. Finding the right coping mechanisms for you can make a huge difference in managing anxiety.


It's important to take care of your mental health just as you would your physical health. Don't be afraid to reach out to a mental health professional if you need support. Together, we can break the stigma around mental health and support each other in leading happy, healthy lives.



Anxiety can feel very overwhelming. It can also make us feel quite lonely at times. We would like to let you know that no matter what you are going through, you are not alone. Reach out if you need help.
