Depression and anxiety

If you're experiencing depression or anxiety, it's important that you seek support. Advice and treatments are available.

Depression is more than simply feeling sad. It affects your thinking, motivation, daily physical activities, sleeping, appetite and more. Every 1 in 5 people will be affected by depression at some point in their life. However, depression is often not recognised or treated. Depression is treatable, and current treatments for depression are safe and effective.

Likewise, anxiety is not just feeling tense or worried. It interferes markedly with a person's capacity to go about their activities of everyday life. Anxiety symptoms can be effectively treated and are best managed with non-drug treatments.
