Our July/August 2012 launch exceeded our expectations. We’ve had over 3500 visits so far, so thanks to everyone for checking us out and helping spread the word. We’re still actively promoting the site, so please contact us if you have any ideas about how we can reach more people. Any links, blog reviews, etc. would be great.
New free online social anxiety symptom assessment
Shortly after launch we added a free symptom test for social anxiety.
More site content
We’ve made some updates to our website:
- There is now a more detailed explanation about the how the treatment program works. In particular, we’ve pointed out that the program includes 70-100 voicefiles from Dr Helgadottir and Professor Menzies, and provided a high-level outline of the treatment program’s 7 sections.
- Based on feedback and questions, we’ve added a “Frequently asked questions” page. (Please let us know if there is anything you would like included here.)
- We now have a section (under the “social anxiety” tab) that contains articles about defining social anxiety, social anxiety symptoms, common treatments for social anxiety, and online cognitive behaviour therapy. Our plan is to continue adding more content to this section so it becomes a useful resource for anyone looking for information on social anxiety.
We will put out a new blog every week (give or take) on a wide range of topics. Some recent entries include:
We’ve got lots of exciting ideas in the works, so please keep an eye on the blog and come back soon!
Thank you for visiting! As always, we’d love to hear from you as our goal is to be constantly improving our site.
