'Is anxiety fashionable at the moment?' This is something I get asked a lot, and it's a good question. We're hearing the word more often, and it appears as though more people are experiencing it. But is modern life causing a rise in prevalence, or are we just more open and honest about it these days? Either way, I'm happy we're talking about it.
I was interviewed for the cover story of this month's North and South magazine, titled Understanding Anxiety. It focuses specifically on social anxiety, something I have personal experience with, and strong interest in. It contains some very honest stories from other Kiwis, which I believe is a crucial part of recovery - knowing others experience it too! There's some useful tips (not just my own!) and I think will touch a lot of nerves.
You can buy it at supermarkets and stationary/book shops, or you can download the online version on the North and South app for ios, which you can get here.
