Anxiety to Calm is a SIMPLE, POSITIVE, and EMPOWERING group program. It is for those who want to have an opportunity for a healthy learning process to manage their anxiety. Anxiety to Calm moves people to ACTION. The program teaches low tech and low cost skills that should be accessible to everyone. Participants receive a journal that engages them to use the skills they learn in class throughout the week and after the program is finished.
Anxiety to Calm is FREE except for a small cost for a paper version of the participant journal. A free PDF journal is available if you prefer having an electronic copy.
