What is anxiety & the effects on mental health

Anxiety is something that we all experience from time to time. It's our body’s way of preparing us to face and manage challenging situations. Sometimes anxiety can help us perform better by helping us feel alert and motivated.

Anxiety can come and go – but for some people, it can stick around for a long time, or happen in situations where you wouldn't normally expect to feel anxious. This can end up having a big impact on their daily lives.

It can be tough to cope, but the good news is there are things you can do and ways you can get support.
