    Hey unicorns_r_real091, If your friend is suffering from anxiety, letting them know youโ€™re there for them when they want to talk can make a massive difference. You can also refer them to amazing organisations such as Lifeline (13 11 14) & Beyond Blue (1300 22 4636), that are there to help. They have great information, resources and forums available to help you understand how to support others.

    hey there
    I found my self in a similar place earlier this year honestly just make sure you are there for her. DON’T WORRY because if your friend knows that you are worring she may get worse as she is worried that you are worried. If your friend has a panic attack (make sure you know what is the norm for her so you can sence when something is different) just put your arm around her (if it helps) it helped my friend as she said she felt out of control but when she felt my arm she knew I was there and she was ok. also just hear her out when she wants to talk and don’t push her if she does not
    Good Luck ๐Ÿ™‚
