The BBC speak to British Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain about her issues with anxiety as part of Mental Health Week.


This week, people all over the UK are being encouraged to open up about mental health and discuss the different problems people can face. In this video, we get an honest look into the problems that Nadiya faces every day. Often, people who have anxiety are very good at concealing it from others, so it’s eye-opening to see what how it seriously it can affect people, even when you can’t see it happening.

Bake Off Winner Nadiya Hussain Opens Up About Anxiety For #MentalHealthWeek image of nadiua

In this video, Nadiya speaks to a therapist  who asks her to describe a situation which would cause her to become anxious. She says that travelling on trains can often set her off, so the therapist immediately tells her that they’re going on a train ride, in order to get her to face her fear. Seeing Nadiya take on her issues and come out the other side is amazing and shines a light on an issue that’s not often talked about.

    It feels like being on the brink of drowing,yet not drowning

    The helplessness of not knowing how to fix it and not being able to explain the precise trauma of the anxiety

    This is real
    Its scary
    Its isolating
