Mental Health

A person’s mental health affects how they feel, think, behave and relate to others. 

According to Sigmund Freud, the definition of mental health is the ability to work and love.

One in five Australians experience mental health issues each year.

Three million Australians are living with anxiety or depression.

Suicide is the leading cause of death among Australians aged between 15 and 44.

16% of Australians misuse pharmaceuticals or use illicit drugs.

Of those Australians who drink, over 37% do so at risky levels.

Mental illness covers a spectrum of disorders that vary in how severe they are and how long they last.


Depression has nothing to do with personal character flaws or weaknesses. Several different things may contribute to developing depression, including things out of your control.

Your treatment plan is based on the symptoms you experience. If you have major depression, your plan may focus on improving your mood. If you have bipolar depression, your plan may focus on establishing a balance between high and low moods. Establishing excellent communication with your mental health specialist is significant because he or she will help you reach milestones and set goals.

Worrying is a part of life, but it doesn’t mean you have a disorder. Sometimes anxiety gets overwhelming, and you need to know how to control it. You may feel anxious about an event coming up or feel pressure to get things done at home or work. Such pressure may take a physical toll leaving you feeling uneasy. 

 Dealing with stress is one thing, but when feeling uneasy and worried takes most of your attention, how you respond to situations may become exaggerated and lead to unhealthy coping.

If you feel like you’re experiencing an anxiety or panic attack, seek help immediately.

Stress is a part of life. Everyone experiences stressful situations from time to time. While it may not look the same for everyone, it still impacts your health in a negative way. 

It can also impact the way that you deal with people, which can cause relationship problems. When you feel stressed you may find that you have less patience and struggle to handle situations that you normally would be able to handle with ease.

If you’re still continuing to struggle with stress relief, you may want to consider talking with a therapist. There are many different techniques that you can use for stress management. If you’re still struggling, it may be helpful to talk with a professional.
