Counselling & Mental Health
Mental illness will affect 1 in 5 Australians and depression will be one of the greatest health issues worldwide by 2020 according to the World Health Organisation. All our GP's are experienced in recognising the early signs and symptoms of mental illness. Being aware that early treatment improves outcomes, our GP's will ensure access to effective treatment and support. Mental illnesses include depression, which affects 1 in 4 women and 1 in 6 men, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, personality disorder, eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia and drug and alcohol addiction. All of these illnesses significantly affect the feelings, thoughts, behaviour and interactions of the sufferer.
