Journey to Recovery from Anxiety

 

Have you wondered how can you tell the difference between normal fears and problem anxiety? This 90 minute presentation will explain the different signs and symptoms, the different types of anxiety disorders and how they present, an overview of strategies and treatment options, and how to assist people living with anxiety.

 

Journey to Recovery from an Eating Disorder

 

Many people think that eating disorders are an attempt to gain attention, a phase or fad, or simply a diet gone wrong.  This could not be further from the truth, and eating disorders are a serious mental illness.  This 90 minute presentation will explain the different signs and symptoms, the different types of eating disorders, an overview of strategies and treatment options, and how to help someone who has an eating disorder.

 

Journey to Recovery from OCD

 

People with OCD often feel frustrated and distressed about their need to act compulsively. When family members and friends are more informed about OCD, it is easier to be supportive and understanding. This 90 minute presentation will explain the different signs and symptoms, an overview of strategies and treatment options, and how to help someone who has OCD.

 

Managing Anxiety and Depression

 

Anxiety and depression are common metal health issues, and most people will know someone struggling with one or both of these issues at some stage. This 90 minute presentation provides an overview of the signs and symptoms of anxiety and depression, and the treatments and strategies which can be helpful in managing them.

 

Unburied from Treasures

 

Hoarding is a complex issue, which can be frustrating for people who hoard, and even more so for their family and friends. This 90 minute presentation provides information about hoarding, the reasons why people hoard, what can be done to overcome the issue, and how to help someone who hoards.
