Alex didn't have serious mental health challenges in his early teens, but when he moved to Canada from Iran in grade 11 he started to struggle. Things came to a head when he started university. Alex was under intense pressure to succeed in a program that he wasn't passionate about. Also, he was still adjusting to living in a new country without his friends and family. He began to have panic attacks for the first time in his life.
The panic attacks were a wake-up call for Alex. After he learned what a panic attack was he looked for resources to support his mental wellness. Alex worked with a professional counsellor, learned more about mental health and found a better social circle. He began to understand how his mind and body are connected, and how he can take a more active role in creating a happy life for himself.
