Hi everybody,

I'm new to these forums and I have been struggling with social anxiety disorder for most of my 19 years. It has caused, and still causes, deep problems for me in all aspects of Jewish life: Whether at school, shul, or anywhere else. However, as I've been through treatment and have improved, I've become really passionate about wanting to raise awareness of these issues in the Orthodox community, and to help other people who are going through similar issues. Unfortunately, I have found very few avenues to do that so far, so what I hope to do is make connections with individuals where we can support each other and try to achieve our goals of changing the attitudes and discussions in our community.

Are there any other young people on this forum with anxiety, depression or other mental health issues, that are thinking the same thing as me? Or do you know people who might? If yes, I would really appreciate if we can get in contact and talk!
