Panic Attacks at School

In this week's podcast we're responding to a message from our inbox on panic attacks at school:

"I have experienced two panic attacks at school during my math class. The class is really noisy and I have trouble listening to the teacher and focusing on a subject that I sometimes struggle with. Things get really intense before a test. I’ve asked to leave the classroom and have tried to breathe deeply when I start feeling maxed out. Is there anything you recommend to help me stay calm and relaxed."
