The last few years have been especially difficult for many of us. Having to respond quickly and adapt to a new way of life and a new normal which at times has created feeling of uncertainty, worry and for many anger and upset when these circumstances have resulted in the loss of friends, family, income and security just to name a few ways in which people have been affected.
The Mental Health Foundation report that in 2022/23, an average of 37.1% of women and 29.9% of men reported high levels of anxiety. Compared to data from 2012 to 2015, this has increased significantly from 21.8% of women and 18.3% of men reporting high levels of anxiety
Mind note that - Anxiety can become a mental health problem if it impacts your ability to live your life as fully as you want to.
For example, it may be a problem if:
- Your feelings of anxiety are very strong or last for a long time.
- You avoid situations that might cause you to feel anxious.
- Your worries feel very distressing or are hard to control.
- You regularly experience symptoms of anxiety, which could include panic attacks
- You find it hard to go about your everyday life or do things you enjoy.
