We are in the midst of some projects that will “publicize” social anxiety, and will allow us to help more people overcome it. Right now, we’re contacting a number of colleges and universities in the Phoenix area and sending them some basic information about social anxiety and the Social Anxiety Institute. We have followed that up by creating new color brochures and flyers, which will be sent out soon. The flyers will be posted on college campus bulletin boards and target individual students. The brochure can be used by college counselors as well as by students.
The campaign will be extended, because we will be contacting psychiatrists, psychologists, counselors, and general practitioners, among others. We are spreading a wide net because we know that many people in the world are suffering in silence, unable to cope with or, at times, even grasp their problem. Hopefully, our efforts will assist in bringing attention and understanding to social anxiety.
