We all experience anxiety! It’s a natural response to a stressful situation. It motivates us to prepare for and deal with life’s challenges.

But what if your level of anxiety doesn’t match the situation? What if it’s greater than normal, it shows up for no reason, or won’t go away? When your level of anxiety impacts and interferes with your life, it has become disordered… an anxiety disorder. For some people, anxiety can be so severe that they even experience panic attacks or panic disorder.

Anxiety disorders can affect anyone of any age, gender or background and can make it hard to do many of the things that others seem to take for granted.

But there’s good news. It IS possible to recover from an anxiety disorder. With the right treatment and support, you can go on to lead a full and rewarding life, and here’s where PACE can help….

Information

We can update you on all the latest information about Anxiety as well as the treatment options and supports available. We can also refer you to a treatment provider or support service in your area.

Support group

The PACE team runs Panic and Anxiety Recovery Support Groups across Adelaide.

If you have anxiety, you can sometimes feel isolated and alone. Your family and friends may not understand what you’re going through or don’t seem to take it seriously.

Our Recovery Groups offer a safe, relaxed space to talk about your anxiety with people who really do understand, because they’ve been through similar experiences. The groups are also a great chance to learn strategies to help you recover. Each Group is co-facilitated by a Peer Support Worker who has been through anxiety, so there will always be someone there who ‘gets you’.

Check out our Recovery Groups page for all the details on a group closest to you.

If you would like to attend one of the PACE support groups you can contact one of our friendly PACE team members below.

One-on-one support

PACE mental health workers provide brief individual support to people living with Anxiety Disorders, Panic Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder or Eating Disorders (this includes providing individual support to carers). PACE individual support provides up to 6 sessions of conversational support with a mental health worker, face to face or via phone/video call.

PACE workers provide information about relevant mental health conditions (psychoeducation), potential treatment options and referral suggestions. PACE individual support does not provide therapeutic or clinical treatments for mental health disorders but does provide a safe and supportive environment to discuss mental health experiences and recovery goals.

We can chat to you over the phone or face-to-face at one of our Centacare offices. You can access up to 6 free one-on-one sessions.

If you would like more information about PACE’s one to one support, please contact us below.
