Learn how to manage anxiety at free Sunshine Coast workshops

SUNSHINE Coast Hospital and Health Service wants to help you learn how to manage stress and anxiety in your life.

The Managing Anxiety Workshops are designed to help you manage the symptoms of anxiety and improve your problem solving skills.

Social Worker John Buchanan encouraged people to attend the workshops to understand why they worry and what causes their anxiety levels to increase. "If you'd like to learn to relax, manage anxiety and enjoy life more, these workshops are for you," Mr Buchanan said.
