This years theme is anxiety. Anxiety is a common mental health challenge affecting countless individuals. It can manifest in various ways, from persistent worry and excessive fear to physical symptoms like racing heart and shortness of breath. At Jamma we believe it is essential to recognise that anxiety is not a weakness or something that can be easily brushed off. By raising awareness about anxiety, we can help reduce stigma and create a supportive environment where those affected feel comfortable seeking help and support.
