Physical Manifestations

Anxiety has an intertwined relationship with our physical health. Our bodies can recognise the stressors of our minds and develop coping mechanisms that aren't really helpful in the long run. So if you have ever experienced inexplainable aches, nausea, or even diagnosable issues like psoriasis and auto-immune diseases, this interactive peer session might shed light on what the actual underlying problems are. Prolonged stress puts your body in a continuous state readiness for physical action. When your body has no time to re-establish equilibrium, it becomes overworked and your immune system weakens, making you susceptible to sickness. Many essential processes are disrupted and your risk of health problems increases. By understanding the different ways in which we can cope with mental stressors, you will develop more control of your physical health. A group of peers experiencing similar experiences can also help you identify symptoms that you might have missed while navigating all the overwhelming parts of life.

  • Gaurav
    Going through a mental health challenge can make you feel isolated and afraid, among many other things. I remember feeling this way when I was in a difficult place, and that's when I signed up for a buddy circle at HiO. Although I was scared at first, that changed to relief and a sense of hope. The buddy circle reminded me that I'm not completely alone in my journey; help and company is always an arm's reach away :')
  • Nandini
    Buddy Circle serves exactly what it promises! I remember being a little nervous about my first session, but as you see people open up one by one and you relate with other's struggles, it feels like you're a part of a community, and you can really understand each other. What I liked about the buddy circle was that it always provides us with a learning strategy, something to take back and implement in your everyday life.
