Anxiety got you up all night? Stressed out? Worried about the future?

In a world full of dating apps, hooking-up, stigma and shame, gay guys have plenty to worry about. For some, anxiety is a sense of apprehension or fear that can lead to repetitive and intrusive thoughts, and difficulty making decisions. For others, it’s an overwhelming sense of panic brought on by many sources of stress. Everyone’s experience with anxiety is different, but don’t worry…. HIM is here for you!

Our experts in mental health have designed a series of workshops designed and customized for gay/bi guys and other guys who have sex with guys.  In this four-week experience, we will explore what anxiety means and unpack how to manage it, and take care of yourself and your loved ones.
