Information

Hi Everyone,

We wish everybody a Happy New Year. Anxiety can be hard to cope with especially after the holiday time when there is nothing to distract us. Instead of struggling with anxiety why not come along and try one of our Recovery Groups, or if you are not up to a group try the one to one Mentoring Service, and learn how to manage your anxiety. We work on CBT and this really works because when we learn to think differently our behaviour changes. The problem with anxiety is the mind struggles with what is reality or what is imagined. This includes the What If’s which is what we think of is going to happen rather than staying in the here and now . Don’t let anxiety dominate your life. Make a goal for the new year and put your name down for one of our services and let us help you work on your anxiety.

No Panic’s Youth Helpline is now open on 01753 840393. This helpline is for those aged 13 to 20 years old. It opens between 4pm and 6pm Monday to Friday. This was developed with the help of the Shropshire Young Health champions.

No Panic has a Live Chat service on our website. When the button in the bottom right is grey it’s offline. When it’s Yellow you can speak to someone. When it’s offline you can leave a message and we’ll email you back.

All you have to do is click the button, fill in a short form and then you can instant message with someone from No Panic. Normal opening times where an operator is available are below.

  • Between 6pm & 7pm each evening
  • Between 2pm & 4pm Wednesdays
  • Between 2pm & 4pm Thursdays

Family Mental Health TV Project

Fresh One Productions is developing a television documentary exploring the impact and effects of anxiety in young children and their family. The aim of this programme, which will be led by healthcare experts, will be to provide viewers with information and guidance on how to identify anxious behaviour in children, what help is available, and how to get the right help. From speaking to OCD charities, early detection is key in order to facilitate the most effective outcome for a child and their family. If you feel your family would be suitable for this programme please see the linked PDF document or below.

Boundless Productions Documentary

Hello everyone.

I am currently researching the idea of a UK based TV programme following families as they try and resolve their anxiety disorders or phobias together and am hoping to speak to families where MORE than one family member suffers from a phobia or other anxiety disorder such as OCD/panic attacks or generalised anxiety. The idea would be that eventually we would film families as they tackle their issues with the help of various experts.

Please comment on here or email me on elizabeth.hardy@boundlessproductions.tv if you can help me.

There’s no obligation to take part in the final programme, if it happens, I’m just trying to learn as much as possible about different disorders at the moment.

Thank you,

Lizzie – Development Producer
