What is anxiety?
Anxiety is more than just feeling stressed or worried. While stress and anxious feelings are a common response to a situation where we feel under pressure, they usually pass once the stressful situation has passed, or the ‘stressor’ is removed. If you find these feelings are slow to pass Anxiety Treatment may help you.
Anxiety is when these anxious feelings don’t go away, when they’re ongoing and happen without any particular reason or cause. It’s a serious condition that makes it hard to cope with daily life. Everyone feels anxious from time to time, but for someone these anxious feelings aren’t easily controlled. There are various ways to treat anxiety, contact us today to find out more.
It 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 it at some stage in their life. In a 12-month period, over two million Australians experience this health condition. It is common, but the sooner people with anxiety get support, the more likely they are to recover.
