The story behind DLC Anxiety

Dean Stott is the founder of DLC Anxiety. DLC is a platform for like minded people to share their own experiences regarding anxiety, panic and stress. I set up DLC initially on instagram, the platform is currently the largest anxiety support community in the world. DLC is a virtual community hub that offers a safe haven for like minded individuals, psychoeducation and interviews with experts around the world.

DLC is short for Dean's likeminded community. I had a vision of wanting to create community where like minded people could support each other and share their own experiences how they cope with living with panic and anxiety disorders. I also wanted to offer my experiences of overcoming anxiety disorders as a personal touch, just like I was helped from a dear friend of mine when I was going through an anxiety disorder and provide daily posts with helpful reminders that people aren't alone and anxiety is only ever a temporary state. I post daily tips and techniques that aren't only documented to work but actually worked on me when I was overcoming anxiety disorders.
