Opening up to a professional about your mental illness or mental health struggles can be daunting, but almost one in five Australians will experience a mental illness in any given year, and almost half of all Australians will experience a mental health condition in their lifetime.
Anxiety disorders are the most common in Australia, followed by depression and substance misuse. Eating disorders, personality disorders and psychotic illnesses are also prevalent.
Sadly it remains under-treated and for many the stigma around mental health remains a barrier to care.
