Our vision is to reduce the impact of anxiety disorders on the lives of all Manitobans. The Anxiety Disorders Association of Manitoba aims to:
- offer self-help for all Manitobans affected by anxiety disorders
- provide Cognitive Behavioural Programs (CBP), and ongoing support groups for the prevention, education, early intervention and management of anxiety disorders to adults.
- provide resources for children, adolescents, adults, families, employers and health care professionals
