A SUPPORT group set up to help people suffering panic attacks has been visited by Sheffield MP Meg Munn.

The Labour MP, who represents Heeley, called in at No Panic’s base on Eyre Street.

The charity has been set up to help people who suffer from anxiety problems and is run entirely by volunteers and funded by grants and donations only.

Anne Dargue, volunteer co-ordinator, said: “We are looking for people in the Sheffield area who suffer from OCD, panic attacks, anxiety and phobias who would be able to benefit from our free self-help groups.

“There is limited help on the NHS for people suffering from panic attacks, and this problem can blight their lives, prevent them from working or living a normal life.

“Our group helps people learn to prevent panic attacks and supports members by enabling them to share their experiences with fellow sufferers.”
