“We came to Anxiety institute once a week for the parent support group. One of the most refreshing things was to hear so many other parents going through the same thing we went through. Our kids are all different, yet we all share this common bond of having a child that you want to help, and you didn’t know how. And coming to Anxiety Institute, for the first time we saw we can help our child and we can learn to help ourselves.”
