Free Online Peer-to-Peer Support Group

ADAA's anonymous peer-to-peer online anxiety and depression support group is a friendly, safe and supportive place for individuals and their families to share information and experiences. As a member you can connect with other people experiencing anxiety and depression and related disorders, contribute to ongoing conversations or start your own conversation with a question or a post about your journey.

Anxiety was always something that Jamie Strasberger struggled with. This struggle helped inspire the launch for Jamie and her husband Sean's phone case company, Because of a Case. The mission was simple: create fun, fashionable phone cases where a portion of sales were donated back to ADAA to help support improving people's mental health. Read more.

 "I know from personal experience...getting anxious kids help early can be crucial in heading off more serious problems later in life."
Childhood anxiety, even severe and chronic, doesn't necessarily stand in the way of success and achievement. But caring parents will do anything to help relieve their children of misery. Scott Stossel, the editor of  The Atlantic
magazine, tells his story of struggling, coping, and living a very productive life.    
Each month ADAA will feature a thank you note, or a personal story of triumph. We invite you to share your own story with us or share how ADAA has helped you or a loved one.
