Dealing with stress

Stress is a word we use so often, we can forget just how detrimental it is for our mental, emotional and physical health.

What do I need to know?

In Australia, many of us lead extremely busy lives, juggling work, study, family commitments, and often on fewer and fewer hours of sleep. When we live with high levels of stress over long periods of time, we risk feeling symptoms like overwhelm, anxiety, fatigue, and social withdrawal. If high levels of stress are interfering with your experience of day-to-day life, it’s important to reach out and seek support.

How can a professional help me?

Mental health professionals have a broad variety of techniques and tools they can use to support you to manage and treat stress, and will work with you to create an effective treatment plan. Common approaches include developing strategies and skills to manage the symptoms of stress and support to identify and address specific triggers or concerns.
