Has anyone ever tried going to an Anxiety peer support group? If so did you find it to be helpful?

Its something I have been curious about for sometime but am still somewhat uneasy about it.

Hey Jacob, Welcome to TeenHelp

I have been to a support group for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder in the past which is a type of anxiety disorder relating to unwanted thoughts and feelings. I thoroughly enjoyed going to them, as just being with other people who shared the same thoughts and feelings that I did was very comfortable. It was an opportunity to make new friends, and at the same time get help with the disorder.

Support groups operate in many different ways. Some support groups are based on a "community meeting" type of feel, where you will talk about issues that you have faced since the last meeting, how you combatted them and how you are. Others operate in a way that lots of different specialists and people come to visit, give advice on anxiety and the conditions and how to help tackle it. More of an informal therapy method.

I definitely think that you should try to find some in your area and at least attend one meeting! If you like it, you can carry on going. If you think that a support group isn't for you, then you don't have to come back and at least you gave it a try!

Adam (:
