Mastering Your Worries

Thess PDF files, mentioned in Appendix 1, are produced by the Centre for Clinical Interventions, a specialist state-wide program that is administered through North Metropolitan Health Services in Western Australia. These downloads are designed to provide you with some information about chronic worrying and generalised anxiety disorder and suggested strategies for how you can manage your worrying and anxiety.  It is organised into modules that are designed to be worked through in sequence.  We recommend that you complete one module before going on to the next. Each module includes information, worksheets, and suggested exercises or activities.
