An open drop-in where you can ask questions about anxiety. The purpose of the drop-in is to answer your questions with specific techniques and things to try out that may be helpful. It is an open group, which means that you can hear answers from others people’s questions.

The reason we are using this model is to help reduce stigma and create an open environment in which we able to share our anxieties, while learning from each other. It’s not a therapy group per se but you may attend as many times as you like. You may find it beneficial to hear the answers to the questions of others, even if you do not have questions yourself.

While there won’t necessarily be anonymity regarding your name, you can refrain from both video and audio if you wish, using the Chat function to type your question.  

Please note: To ensure the safety of the space, you can only enter the group from your activated University of Sussex Zoom Account. This means that only students will be permitted entry.
