California, CA (PressExposure) January 10, 2012 -- Leading online platform for anxiety help, AnxietyTribe, has announced that it offers users the choice of over 170 anxiety groups. These support groups are organized according to different categories. There are 24 categories in total, with titles like Entertainment, Film & Television, Games, Government & Politics, and Hobbies & Crafts, to name just a few.
Mr. Ryan Fitzgerald, the CEO, says, "Ever since we started our website, we have looked for ways to offer effective anxiety help through the many features on our website, like health info and news, therapists' blogs, forums and groups. We are therefore proud to announce that we now offer our users over 170 anxiety groups to choose from, many of which have been created by our members themselves. The fact that the number of anxiety groups on our website has grown so quickly is very significant; it suggests that many people living with anxiety disorders have been able to find comfort and solace through these groups. We hope that other people out there, who are trying to cope with anxiety on their own, will join one of our groups and get support and encouragement to help heal themselves."
AnxietyTribe's anxiety groups are different from other run-of-the-mill support groups in that they don't focus solely on anxiety disorders. In fact, they offer users a chance to re-discover other facets of their selves. They are a way for people living with anxiety to follow their interests in areas like literature, films, television, sports and fashion. AnxietyTribe firmly believes that one of the best modes of anxiety help [www.anxietytribe.com/] is to offer people a safe and secure platform to interact and bond with other anxiety affected people.
Mr. Fitzgerald adds, "While we believe that sharing experiences and tips with other people living with anxiety is therapeutic, we are also aware that there are some people who aren't quite comfortable with the idea, for fear of ridicule. We want to assure such people that our website's groups, forums and user blogs are available only to registered users, so they can feel free to air their doubts and problems, confident that they will get a sympathetic hearing."
