Anxiety represents one of the most common mental health problems in the population, and can be experienced by people of any age. Anxiety influences a person’s overall wellbeing and quality of life. Our study aims to test a new psychotherapeutic intervention delivered via video-conferencing to help combat anxiety in people living with cognitive impairment, irrespective of their location. Our 6-week program combines education about anxiety to help people understand their symptoms, and it provides relaxation techniques to help cope with anxiety.
If you are 65 years or above (55 if you identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander), have been diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment or dementia, and if you are currently experiencing any anxiety symptoms, we invite you to participate.
