Anxiety Canada STRIDES Fall 2016 Newsletter
Message from the Executive Director
One in four Canadians (25%) will have at least one anxiety disorder in their lifetime. This statistic drives home just how important it is that we continue to raise awareness about anxiety and teach ourselves, our children, and those around us how to manage anxiety before it takes control over us.
At Anxiety Canada, autumn is our busiest season. We hear from worried parents, school counsellors, and disconnected individuals. We listen to their challenges, help them navigate the public and/or private mental health system and most often, share with them that anxiety is normal and anxiety disorders are treatable. If there is someone who you think could benefit from being part of our community, suggest that s/he follow us on LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter. As we often say “Small steps can lead to big change.”
