Mental health is a state of well-being in which every individual realises his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community. Some of the signs of mental health concerns tend to be:
1. Feeling anxious or worried
2. Feeling depressed or unhappy
3. Emotional outbursts
4. Sleep problems
5. Weight or appetite changes
6. Quiet or withdrawn
7. Substance abuse
8. Feeling guilty or worthless
9. Changes in behaviour or feelings
If you or your child is experiencing mental health concerns or just not themselves, it is may be important that you seek professional support sooner rather than later. We are very experienced at supporting children, youth and families managing mental health concerns. Our Psychologists offer a professional and private telehealth & online service, using technology that enables you to access services wherever your location in Australia.
Don’t forget that you can ask your GP for a referral as part of a Mental Health Care Plan and medicare will then cover some of the cost of seeing the psychologist.
