  1. […] Every other week, we will be posting a brand new blog on a specific topic. Our topics will range from understanding symptoms of disorders like anxiety and depression to learning how to manage life’s stresses like relationships difficulties, and transitions. The blog styles will range from informational (for example, why does it feel like I am having a heart attack when I’m anxious) to instructional (for example, a how-to guide to improving your mood). These posts are not a form of treatment and do not serve as a replacement of therapy, but rather a way for us to provide education to our broader community. We also encourage you to view our comprehensive list of mental health resources dedicated to Anxiety and Mood Disorders. […]
