A lifetime of chronic anxiety and panic attacks almost led me to suicide early in 2019, in desperation I called every helpline and reached out to everyone I could think of and it seemed no-one could help. Doctors prescribed drugs with horrible side-effects and made referrals that left me waiting for weeks. Everything took too long, and in that frame of mind you need help immediately.
My experience taught me that there is a need for a support network that's always available, no matter where you are in the world or what time it is - a community that understands because they've been there; a directory of professionals, helplines and charities; a library of information and other resources. That's what I hope Group Therapy Network will provide.
