Updates and Insights

A global research analysis conducted by the Black Dog Institute shows that national delivery of school-based prevention programs will reduce incidence of depression and anxiety.

Depression is the leading cause of disease burden in Australia and predicted to be the leading cause of across the world by 2030.

In Australia, around 3 million people will experience depression or anxiety every year, and up to 20% of Australians will experience anxiety or depression before turning 18. Early onset of mental illness is associated with poorer health and social outcomes including increased risk of drug and alcohol abuse, unemployment and suicide.

According to research conducted by Black Dog Institute, and published this week in Clinical Psychological Review, delivery of quality prevention programs via the school system will significantly reduce the community burden of depression and anxiety by preventing or delaying onset, and reducing severity.

Connecting with people and spending time with friends, family and pets can improve your general wellbeing and help you feel supported. Plan a catch-up with a friend or family member you haven’t seen in a while, or get involved in a local group activity.

Do you find it impossible to stop thinking about people, events, and even work when you are supposed to be relaxing or trying to get to sleep? Do find your mind continually dwells on the past? If so, you are not alone.

Finding peace in a frenetic, fast-paced world can be difficult. Most of us are permanently connected to our smartphones and gadgets, which makes “switching off” virtually impossible. Is it any wonder that we are all stressed up to the eyeballs?

Stress is a 21st Century disease and it’s running rampant in modern society. A staggering 64% of Australians admit that stress affects their mental health with almost 40% experiencing some degree of depression. In fact, the Australian Psychological Society reports that 13% of Australians are dealing with severe depression.
