No Panic Sheffield
No Panic Sheffield
No Panic Sheffield offers a number of self-help support groups that meet regularly in the Sheffield area. Based on CBT techniques, the groups aim to help people find ways of managing their anxiety and to recover from panic attacks, OCD and phobias.
New members who are looking to help themselves recover from anxiety and share their experiences with others with similar conditions are welcome; family members and carers can also attend. The groups are free (a small donation is welcome to help cover running costs).
The groups usually meet fortnightly on Wednesday evenings (6.30 - 8.30pm) and Thursday mornings (10am - 12noon) at the Quaker Meeting House in Sheffield city centre. Please visit the website to check dates of groups and events.
