Panic Disorder Forum
Monday April 4, 7-8:30pm at Alma VanDusen & Peter Kaye Rooms (Lower Level), VPL Central Library, 350 West Georgia Street in Vancouver.
Panic disorder is a disabling anxiety disorder that affects approximately 1.3% of the population. In an effort to fill the gap between the need for effective treatment and the limited resources available, BC Psychological Association, AnxietyBC, and Vancouver Public Library have jointly organized an educational event to provide much needed resources to the public on this experienced mental health problem.
On April 4, there will be a free public screening of an educational video on panic disorder – Effectively Managing Panic Disorder: A Self-Help Guide – at the Central library branch. This video, produced by AnxietyBC, provides panic sufferers practical and research-based tools to manage their anxiety.
Following the one-hour video, the audience has the opportunity to participate in a thirty-minute Q & A period with a panel of psychologists and a former panic sufferer. There will also be a chance to purchase the DVD and obtain helpful resources on other anxiety disorders.
This event is co-sponsored by BC Psychological Association, Anxiety BC and Vancouver Public Library.
