When I had my first panic attack, about 17 years ago, I had never heard of them and was terrified. Thankfully, they are long gone; talking about them, and understanding what they were, took a lot of their power away. I joined CommunityMinds to help others going through similar experiences, to give back the support I received and keep the Mental Health discussion going.

Kilrane is my base and I’d be delighted to talk informally to schools, community groups etc. about my experience with Panic Disorder. I’m also happy to lend an ear to someone who may want some support.
