New Event: Understanding and Coping with Anxiety
7pm – 8pm Tuesday December 1st 2020
Cost: $15 BOOKING: http://bit.ly/introductiontoanxiety
Come along on Tuesday December 1st to Warwick Psychology Services for an Introduction to ‘Understanding Anxiety’ with Elena Lennox. Learn more about the signs, symptoms and behaviours so that you can understand what is happening in your life or to someone close to you. Elena is a mental health first aid trainer, a wellbeing coach and a resilience trainer who can help you to understand what triggers that fearful state and how to adopt new habits to calm the turmoil.
You need adrenalin to get out of bed but when your pulse starts racing and you are in a ‘mind loop’, anxiety could be affecting your health. In fact an anxiety attack can show all the symptoms of a heart attack. In these uncertain times, anxiety is on the increase for adults and children.
13.9% of children and young people (aged 4 to 17 years) met the criteria for a diagnosis of a mental disorder in the last 12 months.
Message: One in ten young people aged 12-17 years old will self-harm, one in 13 will seriously consider a suicide attempt, and one in 40 will attempt suicide.
Elena works with both adults and teenagers in group training sessions or with individuals to find coping strategies to better overcome anxiety.
