In the Spotlight
One in ten Canadians suffer from an anxiety disorder, the third most common being social phobia (after depression and alcohol dependence). The crippling illness of social phobia (also called social anxiety disorder) is like a reverse ego: the belief that everything you say and do is monitored and judged by people around you.
At the peak of Earla’s social phobia she was housebound for six years. Today she is challenged with unstable medication, financially supporting herself, and appearing in various media outlets as a mental health advocate. Can her passion to help others outweigh her fear of people? Participating in “In the Spotlight” was an extension to Earla’s recovery.
