Our dedication to mental health has been evident since the founding of our clinic. We actively opened this service upon establishment as we believe it is an area of medicine that requires great attention and awareness.

We will endeavour to help guide and support you through this, at times, difficult process.

 

Depression and Anxiety

Depression and anxiety affects a large percentage of our population. Over the years awareness and acceptance of these illnesses has increased, yet many people still remain quiet, or disbelieving, of their condition.

We all get down or anxious to some degree, however it becomes an illness when it has a significant affect on quality of life, lasts a significant period of time, or affects our ability to function socially or in the workplace.

The positive news is depression and anxiety have safe and effective treatments.

These disorders can be managed via three methods:

 

Self-Help

Self-help is a major weapon in the treatment of mental illnesses. Your doctor will help guide you in what you can do yourself. Self education, physical exercise, relaxation exercises, problem solving (e.g. addressing work-life balance), adequate sleep, and a healthy lifestyle are examples of self-help opportunities.
