Normally, anxiety is a positive state that motivates us to take action. Without anxiety, students wouldn't study for exams; we wouldn't visit the doctor when we think something is wrong; and we wouldn't worry about sticking to a monthly budget. Too much anxiety, however, can seriously affect how we think and feel.
The talk will aim to address the following questions:
What is anxiety?
How do you recognize the signs of anxiety in yourself and family members?
What are the evidence-based treatments for anxiety for adults and children?
What is it like to live with an anxiety disorder?
There will also be a question-and-answer questions period and information available about services and resources in Kingston.
This event is FREE and open to ALL community members!
~ Please join us at 6:30 for light refreshments
~ Talk begins at 7:00
