Mental Health & Pastoral Care Institute Spotlight Session: Social Anxiety with Lauren Errington

Price $25 AUD Get Tickets

Event description

About this event 

Join Lauren Errington as she delves into living with the impact of social anxiety.  

Anxiety is the most common mental ill-health condition in Australia, and 11% of the population meet the criteria for social anxiety disorder at some point in their life. Church and other relationship interactions can be a challenge for those experiencing social anxiety. What happens when our fight, flight and freeze responses, the very mechanisms that are inbuilt to protect us, actually overwhelm us and get in the way of life instead? And when we persistently compare our insides with other people's outsides? Join Lauren Errington at this Spotlight Seminar on Social Anxiety to try to understand more about what happens in our brains and our bodies when we experience social anxiety, and how we can be thoughtful in the way we love and support those around us.  

If you are experiencing financial hardship, and are keen to attend this seminar, we have a limited number of tickets available at the reduced price of $10. Please email us at and we will be happy to provide you with a code.
