I'm not shy, I'm terrified: Posters on social anxiety
Series of posters about social anxiety.
I'm not shy, I'm terrified

Social anxiety is often confused, intentionally or unintentionally, with being overly shy.
400,000 children in Poland in need of psychiatric care
400 child psychiatrists in Poland
In Poland, there are 400,000 children in need of psychiatric care, but only 400 child psychiatrists, according to Ombudsman for Children (Rzecznik Praw Dziecka).

Poland has also the second highest number of child suicides in Europe (according to prof. Janusz Heitzman, vice-chairman of Polish Psychiatric Association).

I wish there was more talk about mental health in public education, especially in early years.
Here, but not really
I've met so many great people who seem to be somehow withdrawn from their surroundings, secluded, unable to connect with people around, even if they're among friends. That fear of exposing yourself is, I'm sure, a familiar feeling for many of us, and I feel like it's the disease of our times. When that fear becomes unbearable, it becomes social anxiety.

Or that's my simplistic armchair expert explanation for it.

I'm battling that fear myself and I feel like I've made a lot of progress. Although the number of times that I've felt that same fear from someone next to me makes me sad, it always helps when you know that you're not alone.
