Resources to support panic disorder

1. Togetherall offers an online easily accessible platform to anonymously reach out to others via forums, carry out self-assessments on anxiety and panic and access a range of self-help courses such as managing panic.

Some people find relaxation can help alleviate some of the anxiety that builds due to panic, therefore you may want to check out the relaxation and meditation section for some ideas available via the main Wellbeing Hub page.
