We know that anxiety has an important role to play in helping us get around safely in the world and can be a beneficial ‘early warning system’ in a range of experiences. But for millions of Australians suffering from anxiety disorders, worries become a constant feature of everyday life. http://www.mindhealthconnect.org.au/anxiety
If you feel sad for weeks on end, find yourself low on energy or motivation, or no longer enjoy doing things that used to interest you; you might be experiencing depression. http://www.mindhealthconnect.org.au/depression
Stress can be caused by our circumstances or by our own attitudes and expectations. In today’s world, some people seem to thrive on stress but many others report high levels of stress with negative effects on their health. http://www.mindhealthconnect.org.au/stress
It’s important to understand that wellbeing is distinct from happiness, which can come and go, whereas wellbeing is a consistent state of wellness, satisfaction and contentment. http://www.mindhealthconnect.org.au/wellbeing
