No Panic Sheffield runs self help groups every week for individuals aged 18+, on a Wednesday evening and Thursday morning. Due to Covid the Thursday morning sessions are on hold, this is until Quaker Meeting House reopens which we are hoping will be late April 2021. However, the Wednesday evening sessions continue to run with great success online.
Online meetings every Wednesday night 6:30-8:30pm (updated April 2021)
These meetings are via Zoom-www.zoom.usor you can use the Zoom app on your phone. It is simple, you will be sent an email on the day of the session and all you need to do is open the Zoom link at 6:30pm when the session starts.

Want to come to a session?
Although no one likes paperwork, by filling it in you are letting us know the conditions people have wanting to come to our groups. This could lead to the formation of new groups in future. This led us to wanting to set up a PTSD group.

What are groups like?
The purpose of the groups is to share experiences of anxiety, learn together, a social aspect, normalise anxiety/depression/low mood and to share coping strategies. The group size is 5-12 members usually.
We talk about a very large list of topics (around 100 have been covered over the years). This includes individual conditions like social anxiety and depression, but also coping strategies, sleep. travel, the workplace, families, self esteem and anger. The list is not exhaustive, we really have done scores of topics. We welcome suggestions from regular members, but choose topics for the benefit of the group. We do not offer bespoke tailored sessions or therapy.
