Hi, my name is Matt Lander and I am the creator of Panic Shutdown.
Panic Shutdown started because after suffering with generalised anxiety and panic disorder for almost 10 years, I learned how to recover. What immediately struck me as I began my recovery was ‘how come it took me 10 years to find this information!’ As I started doing some research I realised that there are many people out there that have been suffering with anxiety for even longer than I did. I wasn’t happy about this and became to determined to share what I had learnt, so I could prevent the unnecessary suffering of others.
Panic Shutdown was created to help those suffering with anxiety and panic attacks. We are run by people with experience of living with anxiety, panic attacks and associated depression and phobias. We are a ‘non-profit’ organisation and any profits go directly into advertising and developing our program, including the website, so that we can help as many people recover as possible.
We can provide help and support if you’ve been diagnosed with, or suspect you may have an anxiety condition including help with phobias and depression – in fact, anything that’s stopped you from getting on with your life.
Panic Shutdown is run by qualified counsellors and with our help you can start to recover your confidence and regain your life from anxiety and panic.
We can also offer information and services to professional health care workers (GPs, psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers etc.) working, or interested in the area of anxiety disorders.
