Anxiety Disorders Association of Manitoba (ADAM)
Winnipeg, MB – March 22, 2020

The Anxiety Disorders Association of Manitoba (ADAM) has been providing services and support to Manitobans with anxiety disorders and their families, and education and information to the public about anxiety disorders, for over 30 years.  All of our staff and volunteers have personal, lived experience with anxiety, have overcome the disabling effects of anxiety, and are now sharing that information and experience with others.  We receive expert, on-going, current input from professionals in the field.  ADAM recognizes that there is an increase in anxiety in the general public at this time due to the COVID19 virus, and we are here to help.

We have established an anxiety support line for anyone seeking support during this challenging time.  Beginning Monday, March 23, people are invited to call our support line at 204-925-0040.  The line will be checked regularly between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on weekends.  People are asked to leave their name, phone number or email address and an ADAM representative will get in touch with them within a short period of time.

Alternatively, people can also call our general office number at 204-925-0600 and leave a message, or email us at adam@adam.mb.ca   Relevant information can also be found on our website atwww.adam.mb.ca or our Facebook page.

The support line is not a crisis line.  People experiencing a crisis should go to the Crisis Response Centre, the nearest hospital emergency department, or call the Klinic Crisis Line, the Mobile Crisis Team, or Emergency services at 911.
