Resources for finding Anxiety Help Online
If you’ve found yourself having anxiety symptoms, and need immediate support, there are several sources for reaching out for anxiety help online. Anxiety and depression can often go hand in hand, so I have resources available for depression as well.
Sometimes you just can’t wait for that next appointment with your doctor or counselor. It’s great to know that you can reach out to someone when you need support immediately.
I’ve put together a list of resources to several different sites that offer anxiety help online, including both counseling services and peer support groups.
Here you’ll find resources ranging from active listeners, peer chats with others who also have anxiety, as well as hotlines and even courses you can take to help overcome anxiety symptoms.
And of course, if you’re just looking to chat with someone who can relate, I’m always available! Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or message me through Facebook at Jess is a Mess.

If you find yourself having more trouble with your anxiety than usual, your symptoms are worsening, or you are having trouble controlling panic attacks, please utilize these resources.
Anxiety and panic attacks can take a serious toll on your health. I know sometimes we think we can manage our symptoms on our own. I’ve been there. But we forget that we’re so used to feeling the way we do every single day.
Because of that, sometimes it’s hard to recognize the level your anxiety has reached. It’s very important to learn self-awareness. I honestly believe that is the most important, and very first step in taking control of your anxiety symptoms.
With the hundreds of resources out there, from outpatient counseling, to anxiety help online, there’s no need to try and suffer through your symptoms on your own.
You can take control. You’ve got this. We’re all in it together. Know that you are not alone.
I created this blog so that everyone can find a place to go. Where you can find someone who can relate. Someone who understands. I’m here, to share my story, in hopes that it will help others.

If you’d like to join me in my journey, go to my homepage at Jessisamess.com and check out my blog posts. I share my own personal thoughts and feelings about anxiety, depression, ADD and mental health.
I can relate to both sides of this unfortunate coin, as I am both a sufferer, and I know what it’s like to live with someone with these disorders (and then some).
Just remember – you are not alone.
