Everyone feels worried or stressed from time to time. Usually, those feelings fade when a stressful situation has passed. However, some people experience overwhelming feelings of worry, for no particular reason, that can make it difficult to cope with daily life. This is called anxiety.
Anxiety is the most common mental health condition in Australia, affecting around one in every four people.

The Anxiety Day Program is a group therapy program especially designed to help patients with anxiety disorders. The program focuses on issues identified by research to be important in triggering and maintaining anxiety. These include avoidance, unhelpful thinking, problem solving, facing fears and assertiveness. The goal is to help people respond positively to their negative thoughts and to be able to live the kind of life they would like, without being held back by fear.
Our Anxiety Day Program is designed for people who experience symptoms of anxiety such as panic attacks, worry and avoidance to an extent that interferes with their quality of life. Attendance is for 12 weeks. The Anxiety Day Program operates on a closed-group format. This means that new members can only join the group at the beginning of the 12-week program.
The Anxiety Day Program includes pre-arranged topics and focuses on issues identified by research to be important in triggering and maintaining anxiety. Group members receive a copy of the program on commencement which consists of all the topic information covered in the sessions and activity sheets.
Members will have an opportunity to learn about all of the topic areas during their period of attendance. On completion of the program, members will be assessed on an individual basis and either referred to a different program or discharged in consultation with their treating team.
A sample of the topics covered in The Anxiety Program are:
