Campaign: To encourage people with social anxiety disorder to seek help

I’ve experienced social anxiety and at times, I’d say it’s changed me as a person.

I had a panic attack in a crowd and then became scared to be around people, so I’d avoid them.


Although I’m now on the road to recovery, it took me time to open up and get help because I was worried people would judge me.  


But bottling up my feelings only made the situation worse.


With Fixers, I want to show others that there is help available.


If I can encourage more people to talk about their experiences, I hope they’ll be able to seek the support they need.

Here is a list of Fixers helping me with this Fix:
