We all get stressed at times, and we all deal with varying degrees of anxiety, but some of us carry a heavier burden of ongoing and seemingly unrelenting anxiety that can be difficult to understand and navigate.
Anxiety, like any other health condition, is not a character defect nor is it something to feel shame over. We may not choose to have it, but we can choose to manage it and learn to live well.
If you or someone you know is struggling with anxiety, we are here for you. Contact our team of registered counsellors for a free, one-time phone consultation and/or get a referral to a counsellor in your area who can help you find a way forward. Call 1.800.661.9800 Mondays to Fridays, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. to book your consultation, get a resource recommendation or receive prayer from our caring and compassionate staff team.
