At Cannonvale Medical Centre we believe when it comes to mental health it’s all about starting a conversation. Poor mental health can have far-reaching effects, finding someone you can confide in is the first step to recovery.
We understand the link between mental health and physical health, which is why we place just as much importance on the emotional well-being as we do on the physical well-being of our patients.
Statistics from the WHO (World health Organisation) show that nearly half (44%) of all Australians will suffer from some form of mental illness during their lifetime. Whilst it’s easy to see the effects our stressful lives are having on our health; mental health still remains a taboo subject in many circles.
If you recognise symptoms in yourself or a family member, or friend, it’s always best to consult with your local doctor. By starting the conversation and seeking some support it can make a big difference.
Symptoms can be obvious, or they can be subtle, some tell-tale signs are lack of appetite, lack of motivation, and sleeplessness. Even if you’re unsure, it’s always best to raise any concerns with your General Practitioner. Remember we are a bulk billing medical centre and are here to help you.
