Prevention is better than treatment.

By equipping individuals with the tools to understand and navigate their emotions, manage stressors related to personal and professional life, and adopt healthy coping mechanisms, we aim to achieve several vital outcomes:

At the Barrie Anxiety Clinic, we believe that investing in emotional education is an investment in a healthier, more resilient future. By addressing this critical gap, we contribute to the holistic well-being of our community.

"After having Yuliya of the Barrie Anxiety clinic as a guest speaker, I would rate my mental health awareness at a 8-9, compared to a 3-4 at the beginning of the semester. It really opened my eyes that talking about your thoughts, feelings or emotions is ok, and does not make you any less than another individual. It certainly helps hearing about other first responders seeking help, and it helps reinforce that even though they are tough, they are not invincible. I was also extremely happy having the opportunity to talk to Yuliya about types of treatment, and her thoughts on medication to treat such disorders. She really helped me see things in a different light, so for that I owe a big thank you. "
