For far too long society veiwed discussion around mental health as being a sign of weakness and that anyone suffering with the condtion was somehow seen as incomplete as a human being. I am glad to say, times are at long last begining to change and nowadays there is a great increase in awarness of people suffering with Depression.
For people suffering with Anxiety disorders however there is still a distinct feeling that it is widely ignored and under reported.
This is after all a condtion that affects so many people and if left untreated can lead to Depression and substance abuse.
It is our duty to make sure people suffering with Anxiety disorders are no longer left to feel
isolated, dealing with these issues on their own. We can do so much to help, but we need to make a real effort.
We can all play our part, we can start by making sure to always be there for any friend, work colleague or family member who is suffering with this horrible condtion.
If we feel someone is suffering with Anxiety disorders be there for them, it really helps if they feel they have someone there with them.
listening to them, with understanding, with kindness and giving them most importantly human support. It is amazing how much better people feel after they have talked to a person who has taken the time to really listen to them. Now i mean been physically present, i dont mean talking on a phone, texting
ect, that physical contact is really so important. It really shows the person that you care, anyone can send a text message.
If they feel that may need further help to deal with Anxiety, you can then help to support them by making sure they pay a visit to there GP, and then if need further help with a therapist, help them make that contact, without that support, they may not seek that help that would be so important in helping them start on the road to recovery.
Let us start to look after each other, we can all really begin to help people suffering with Anxiety. It is time to play your part, we can play such an important part in both helping people suffering with this horrible condtion and also by helping to increase Awareness of Anxiety Disorders.
