Everyone feels anxious from time to time; it’s our body’s way of keeping us prepared. But it becomes a problem when worry starts to affect your day-to-day life.
Anxiety is your body’s physical response to fears. Your breathing might rise, your heart might start beating faster and you could feel butterflies in your stomach.
Anxiety tends to prevent you from meeting with friends, family, go to work or school. Rather than feeling anxious in response to actual danger, someone who experiences anxiety symptoms will experience the same symptoms in situations they see as dangerous (e.x. when meeting new people or taking public transportation).
Mental health care is provided from several health centres/clinics including Cospicua, Floriana, Gzira, Mosta, Mtarfa, Paola and Qormi.
