Journeys of Hope and Recovery

When it comes to stress, anxiety and panic many of us have a valuable story to tell.

At ARCVic we believe that by sharing stories of recovery we can help break down the stigma surrounding mental illness. By providing the community with
real life experiences of crisis and recovery, we know we can get families, schools and workplaces talking and thinking differently about mental health.

Are you an Anxiety Ambassador?

Would you like to participate in a unique opportunity to share your story of recovery?
Have you developed skills and tools that you think may help others experiencing anxiety?

How can I participate?

We welcome you to share your stories and skills in whichever way you feel comfortable. You may want to use video, or prefer to use voice recording, poetry, collage, photographs or drawings. Alternatively you may want to demonstrate your favorite mindfulness or grounding exercise. There are so many ways to contribute and share your stories and skills...we welcome your creativity and original ideas!

We hope you spend some time reading the stories from others who have experienced chronic and debilitating anxiety and that you find hope and connection on our ARCVic Anxiety Ambassador Story Board below. We look forward to hearing your voice amongst our diverse community of Ambassadors! Send your story to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
