Panic Attack?

If you are in the midst of a panic attack, or you want to be prepared for the future, we're here to help you through it.

When you're having a panic attack, adrenaline is causing your body to respond with shortness of breath, quickened heartbeats and more.

The breathing exercise in the next section may help your body slow down.

Anxiety is often what puts your body into flight-or-flight, even if it’s not directly related to an anxiety disorder.

Meditate during the next section. It may help you reduce anxious thoughts.

If this helps, here is a guided meditation you can try.


Sometimes connecting with someone can help. It’s important to know who your safe people are, and if you don’t have safe people in your life, an online community can also help.

Send a screenshot of the next slide to a loved one.

If this helps you, #CheckInWithMe is an online community you can connect with 24/7.


Sometimes it’s just important to hear that what you’re going through is normal, and that others have experienced it too.

The next slide may help you find validation in a shared connection.

If this helps you, join our Panic Attack topic page where you can talk about your experiences with people who get it.


Sometimes, the most helpful thing is pure distraction. Getting your mind or body to focus on something completely unrelated to what’s going on with you.

Enjoy a funny distraction on the next slide!

We hope you were able to find what you needed.

Go through this as often as you need to, and consider building some of these exercises and ideas into a crisis plan so you're prepared for the future. We're rooting for you!
