About the Association

The Anxiety Disorders Association of British Columbia (AnxietyBC™) is a non-profit organization established in 1999 by a group of concerned individuals, family members, and health professionals. The association’s mission is to promote awareness of anxiety disorders and support access to evidence-based resources and treatment.

AnxietyBC™ is a Canadian leader in developing online, self-help, and evidence-based resources on anxiety and anxiety disorders and promotes understanding about anxiety and anxiety disorders through general information sessions, professional seminars and workshops, offered throughout the year.  We are the developers of the free MindShift app which helps youth and young adults manage anxiety, using step-by-step strategies based on psychological treatment.

AnxietyBC is a member of the BC Partners for Mental Health and Addictions Information and one of seven leading mental health and addictions non-profit agencies in British Columbia. BC Partners contribute and collaborate on the development of evidence-based resources and services related to mental health and addictions.
