Shared Experiences: What is it Like to Live with Social Anxiety?

Featured Image

Brought to you by real people with real stories, our Shared Experiences series shines light on the mental health struggles we all commonly face. 1 in 5 people experience a mental illness in a given year and by the time someone reaches 40, the prevalence is 1 in 2 and many don't reach out for help. At MindBeacon, we strive to change that. Care to share your story and help others remember they're not alone? Reach out to community@mindbeacon.com to play your part in removing the stigma. 

Social anxiety is one of the most common anxiety disorders affecting between 7% to 13% of Canadians. Those who experience social anxiety are prevented from doing things in their life that they'd really like to be doing but can't because of the fear of judgement from others. What does is mean to really live with social anxiety though? 

We caught up with Brendan to get a real feel for what it means to be socially anxious and how it has impacted his life. Listen to his story here:
