Mental Health

Mental health is about being cognitively, emotionally and socially healthy.
One in five Australians aged 16 to 85 experience a mental illness every year, and as we get older, loneliness and lack of support increases the risk of mental health conditions such as depression and anxiety.
Having social connections, good personal relationships and being part of a community are vital to maintaining good mental health.

Understanding mental health

The term ‘mental health’ is often misunderstood to mean ‘mental health conditions’ such as depression and anxiety. Mental health is a about a state of wellness rather than illness and a person’s mental well-being is their ability to cope with the normal stresses of life. Being connected to family, friends and community are important factors in maintaining positive mental health.

Our social support team and caring clinical nurses can help you stay connected to the people in your life who matter most and support you need when your mental well-being is low.
