New support line helps Manitobans struggling with anxiety due to COVID-19

The Anxiety Disorders Association of Manitoba has started an anxiety support line to help people cope with the stress of COVID-19.

“The level of anxiety in the community has skyrocketed,” said the organization’s executive director Mary Williams.

“We have the experience and resources to help people cope with their anxiety.”

Starting on Monday, people can contact the support line at 204-925-0040 to speak to one of the organization’s staff.

“People with anxiety disorders at this time are going to be feeling even more anxious than normal because of all of the uncertainty that’s going on. It’s open to people with anxiety disorders but also people who are experiencing anxiety,” Williams said.
