Anxiety and Depression
What is anxiety and depression and how do I know if I have it?
DID YOU KNOW: Figures from the ABS National Health Survey conducted from 2017-2018 show that there were an estimated 4.8 million Australians living with a mental or behavioural condition which included depression and anxiety.
Teens and young adults are reported to be the highest affected group.
This figure is increasing as more people are reporting feelings of depression and anxiety.
Anxiety and depression are mental health disorders
Depression is a mood disorder identified by feelings of extreme sadness and worthlessness with the inability to lift yourself out of the mood. This can continually keep affecting behaviours and everyday life in a negative way, and people with depression usually think they can’t be helped.
Anxiety is identified as an ongoing stress disorder where people find that they cannot stop worrying about events that have impacted their everyday life or fears about what might happen in the future.
These worries and stresses are often much bigger in perception than in reality.
Are anxiety and depression related?
Some symptoms of depression and anxiety can overlap in each disorder. People with depression can have anxiety and the other way around. However, excessive worry or stress is not usually connected to depression. Likewise, thoughts of self-harm or suicide are usually linked to more to depression.
What are the symptoms of anxiety and depression?
Are you feeling overwhelmed by pressure in this demanding world? Feeling emotions of hopelessness and aloneness, not able to cope with day-to-day activities, finding that you are constantly agitated, and your negative inner critic is working overtime to put you down.
Symptoms differ between people and some symptoms are part of life’s ebb and flow. In Australia, one in four people is on medication for depression.
Just trying to juggle work, finances, relationships and study can affect the mind and body which can lead to major problems for some people.
