Anxiety Management
Program Details (Back to Programs)


Are you struggling with panic attacks, chronic worry or anxiety around social situations?
Common signs of anxiety include:

• Physical symptoms such as chest pain, shortness of breath, muscle tension, stomach discomfort, racing heart

• Thoughts such as fear of dying or losing control, excessive worries that you can’t seem to turn off, excessive fears in social situations or in situations where it is difficult to leave, worries that others might think badly of you

• Behavioral symptoms such as avoiding situation out of fear or needing to escape situation that trigger fear
If you can relate to these symptoms, then anxiety might be a problem in your life.

Help is available.

The Maple Family Health Team offers Maple FHT patients a 10 week anxiety treatment group which uses cognitive behaviour therapy to help participants learn practical strategies to deal with the physical symptoms, thoughts and behaviours associated with anxiety. Groups are run periodically during the year and are facilitated by two mental health professionals.

What is expected from participants?
  • To commit to attending all sessions (weekly for 10 weeks)
  • To practice strategies learned in sessions and between sessions
If you would like to participate in the group, or would like to get more information about it, please speak with your physician, nurse or mental health counsellor.
