Anxiety - Fact or Fiction?
Angela Berra - Director of Programs for NAMI
(National Alliance on Mental Illness) St. Louis
We feel it everywhere - increased stress and anxiety at home, at work - where for many of us are integrated more than we like these days. Anxiety is on the rise as more and more people struggle with how to handle the unpredictability of this season in life and changes that are beyond our control.
This presentation shares general information about anxiety as well as coping skills we can use ourselves or use to help loved ones who are struggling with anxiety and/or stress at home, work, or in the community.
