The ARC is an amazing organization and it is getting better all of the time. I have been attending the support groups for anxiety disorders for about a year now. The ARC is the only place I can talk openly about my experiences with an anxiety disorder and get ideas from others in the same boat. The center has also recently added new features, such as an experiential group and a clinical group. They are also considering adding yoga, which has been shown to help many anxiety disorders. I cannot emphasize enough enough what a positive influence the center has in my life and the lives of others with anxiety disorders.
It is hard to find support groups for Trichotillomania and other Body Focused Repetitive Behaviors. The ARC is unique in offering a group where people can discuss these behaviors & disorders in a safe & nurturing environment. The referral services, activity & creativity groups, as well as educational programs are great ways to support people in the community who live every day with an anxiety disorder (or 3).
The group sessions at the Center helped give me a new perspective on my OCD and gave me a safe place to discuss my issues with others that were experiencing similar situations.
It is such a pleasure volunteering and serving on the board of the Anxiety Resource Center. I am grateful for all the individuals who help and contribute to the overall mission of the ARC. Thank you!
My son suffers from anxiety and OCD. The teenage anxiety support group that he was a part of, gave him a positive role model, coping mechanisms, and most importantly, showed him that there were others much the same. The group leader was always willing to take the extra time and help, whenever, and where ever he could. Along with the teenage group, the resources available to parents are also very helpful. This is a fantastic group that does a great job! Best value in West Michigan!
