MP pays call to help group

Have your say

A SUPPORT group set up in Sheffield to help sufferers of anxiety disorders has been visited by MP Meg Munn.

No Panic Sheffield is based in Cumberland House, on Eyre Street in the city centre, and helps people suffering from panic attacks, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder and phobias.

Heeley Labour MP Ms Munn visited the group to talk to volunteers and former sufferers.

The politician met Paul Bliss, one of the charity’s trustees, Anne Dargue, volunteer co-ordinator, administrators Denise Harris and Chris Sheppard, and others volunteers.

Anne said: “We explained to Meg that just knowing you are not the only one suffering is a huge relief for many coping with anxiety.

“The group receives little outside funding and is staffed entirely by volunteers but manages to run two groups in Sheffield city centre, with meetings in Heeley and Shirebrook coming soon as well.”
