Who we are
No Panic (Sutton & Merton) is a self-help group that provides support to people suffering from anxiety, panic attacks and phobias. Support meetings are held weekly on alternate Wednesdays and Thursdays. The group exists to offer people support for their anxieties by talking to fellow sufferers and helping them to live a more positive life.
Self-help means mutual support provided by members of a group who share anxiety-based problems, and who have come together to pool their knowledge and experiences to help them find their own solutions. We do not think in terms of "curing people", but more in terms of people being helped to help themselves.
Further information on our self-help group meetings can be found on our Support page.
Development Worker & Founder
Jean set up the charity in 1997 after being told that there was no support for people who suffered with anxiety, panic attacks and phobias. When enquiring about a self-help group, the response was that if she wanted one she would need to start it herself - so she did! Jean worked tirelessly in Sutton, and for a while in Merton, promoting the group and the support it offered. Jean sadly passed away in 2019, she was a well respected member of the Voluntary Sector Community and will be missed by many.
