The Changes and Challenges of Anxiety and Depression
Home Care & Support for People with Anxiety and Depression, Sunshine Coast
Did you know that over three million Australians live suffering from anxiety or depression? And obviously the Covid 19 pandemic has not helped this situation. The present upheavals show both the best and worst of people and communities.
Solidarity and kindness, understanding and empathy are needed by those who are struggling – and creative optimism too. Always remember that behind every raw statistic is a real person
Anxiety is far more than just feeling stressed or worried. While stress and anxious feelings are a very normal response to feeling under pressure, they usually cease once the stressful situation is over. Anxiety is the most common mental health complaint in Australia: more than two million Australians experience anxiety every year, and the sooner they get the right support, the more likely they are to recover.
You may only need certain lifestyle changes to find a balance that works for you: regular exercise and reduced stress. And cutting out drugs and alcohol. Free online e-therapies may help. Or for more serious cases you may need psychological or medical help and treatment.
But people will not change to fit into a system that wasn’t built to meet their needs, and the system needs to be changed to fit them. Effective treatment can teach you how to control your anxiety so that it does not control you. But you need the right treatment and the right health professional.
