That’s what having anxiety is like – and The Anxiety Survival Guide is here to help. From helping readers identify the enemy, to safeguarding the vulnerable areas of their lives leading mental health writer Aaron Gillies will with warmth, skill and humour examine the impact of anxiety, and give readers some tools to fight back.
