Austin Social Anxiety Meetup


Social Anxiety: A persistent fear of one or more social or performance situations in which the person is exposed to unfamiliar people or to possible scrutiny by others. The individual fears that he or she will act in a way (or show anxiety symptoms) that will be embarrassing and humiliating. (DSM-IV Definition: Social Anxiety Disorder, Ref. A)

We're a group of SA sufferers who wish to increase our understanding of the disorder and provide support for each other. All that is needed is an open, understanding mind and the courage to overcome your insecurities. While the group is comprised primarily of individuals suffering from social anxiety, we welcome anyone who can offer insight and support in working through and overcoming this anxiety.

With our significant member base, our group can offer support, understanding, and resources, no matter your level of social anxiety. We can offer events and opportunities to: participate in topic discussions, share experiences, ask questions, seek support, make new friends, and socialize in an understanding environment--all with others who know what it's like.

Be sure to visit our “About Us” page for more information.
