My daughter has severe anxiety . She’s under camhs but been struggling for 4 years . I do everything the professionals suggest to support her . She has deteriorated in the past two months and no longer manages school (some days she sets off but comes home hyperventilating before reaching school ) , the school are good and understand and send work home which I then home school. She can’t leave the house anymore without panic attacks . If I leave the house she texts me constantly telling me I need to get home . She can’t sleep and will wake me up till around 2am with her anxiety meltdowns . She becomes angry and frustrated at herself because she wants to go to school and have friends (she’s lost all her friends ) , after anxiety and panic her rage follows and it’s me who receives that , then her tears and sadness and then an apology . She can have a panic attack for no reason at all . Camhs tell me to keep doing what I’m doing and it will improve but it’s getting worse and I’m on my own coping with it and I feel hopeless and useless . Has anyone any tips on how to support her and help lesson these debilitating attacks ? Mindfulness never works with her as she will be too panicked and angry to try . 
Hi, I understand that this is a difficult and upsetting. If you feel that Camhs are doing an unsatisfactory job, in my (unqualified) opinion four years is plenty of time to see what happens, we suggest that you keep in contact with them and tell them that what they're advising isn't working and that your daughter's health is getting worse. Perhaps you can go to your GP and discuss the situation. You can get in contact with Young Minds, an organisation that helps families in similar situations to yourself, you can call them on their freephone helpline on 0808 802 5544. If you feel you need further support please e-mail us at or call our freephone helpline on 0808 800 2222.
