We are extremely happy to announce that Thrive have partnered with No Panic- a registered charity whose aim is to help those who experience panic attacks, anxiety, phobias, OCD and other related anxiety disorders. They not only support those individuals suffering themselves, but also those who care for somebody with an anxiety disorder. It is suggested that up to 18% of the population within the UK suffer from an anxiety related disorder- so by working together- we are aiming to help as many of those as possible!
No Panic are a telephone helpline where individuals who need to talk can reach out to them. All volunteers are trained and is available every day of the year! From January, they will be offering our app, ‘Feel stress free’ to each of their members, callers and volunteers in attempt to help as many people as possible who are affected. They have a range of self help tools including a night time crisis line, telephone recovery groups, telephone one to one mentoring, written recovery programmes, a selection of books, guides on starting a local self help group. Roughly 75% of those with an anxiety disorder do not seek professional help with many preferring to cope confidentially.
Feel Stress Free offers users clinically proven techniques, developed by leading psychologists and psychiatrists to build resilience to and prevent stress, anxiety and mild depression. It is the first app of its kind to be going through the process of becoming featured within the ‘Public Health England’ library. By partnering with No Panic, we are hoping to achieve a larger number of people improving their mental health and wellbeing.
