If you are sad and or anxious a lot of the time, you know it because you live it. It interferes with your functioning, renders you helpless when making important decisions and leaves you with a sense of dread and fear that you may never recover.
Why does everyone else appear to cope okay? This is a common question asked by sufferers, but it is also a myth. It is estimated that 20% of Australians aged between 16-85 experience a mental illness in any year.
Anxiety and depression in particular have been referred to as the "common cold" of mental illness. And while these conditions are indeed prevalent, there is nothing benign about them.
At anxietyanddepression.net.au we offer psychotherapy exclusively for these conditions and assure you that professional help is at hand.

it empties today of its strength"
