Let’s make mental health a priority!
Anxiety is the most common mental health condition in Australia. On average, one in four people – one in three women and one in five men – will experience anxiety at some stage in their life. In a 12-month period, over two million Australians experience anxiety.
The reality of this means that many of us or those close to us will experience mental health challenges in our lives. If you joined us at our May Gathering you know that we are serious about arming you with the best resources and support. Read below to find suggested information and support referrals.

Where to start?
VISIT A GP
In many cases, the first step in accessing services for treatment of anxiety, depression or a related condition will be a consultation with a General Practitioner (GP). Your GP can work with you to write a Mental Health Treatment Plan and refer you to a mental health specialist, such as psychologist or psychiatrist if needed. If it’s right for you your GP can organise up to six Medicare rebatable sessions with a professional. A Medicare rebate is where Medicare will refund you part of the cost of your appointment with a doctor or specialist. Which makes everything way more affordable.
