About Melissa Woolfson

Fundraising for action anxiety day

For most of my childhood and adolescence, I didn't understand what it meant to "have anxiety." Young and naïve, I dismissed it as an easy excuse people made, without comprehending the debilitating effects it can have. As I approached my mid-20s and began experiencing anxiety symptoms myself, I was shocked at how all-consuming it could be. As someone who always enjoyed spontaneity and adventure, the onset of anxiety symptoms significantly impaired my sense of self. During my journey to mental wellness, I discovered Anxiety Canada and was amazed by the significant improvement I felt once informed. With this knowledge and understanding, not only could I become more compassionate toward those who struggle with anxiety, but it made me kinder to myself. I now work at Anxiety Canada because I believe that psycho-education can be life-changing and that everyone deserves access to evidence-based resources. With millions of people struggling with anxiety, providing basic education and free resources should be a no-brainer. Please consider donating to Anxiety Canada in honour of Action Anxiety Day! Help us raise awareness, educate others, and continue to break the stigma.
