Recognising the signs

 Quick Summary

If you, or a loved one are experiencing a mental illness or psycho-social disorder for the first time, this can be a very frightening, confusing and lonely time. Mental illness effects can range from mild to severe, and can happen occasionally or frequently. Each year about 3.6 million Australians will experience a period of mental ill health. Research shows that early diagnosis and treatment is much more likely to assist in halting, or reducing the symptoms of most episodes of mental illness.

The next step is to get some help, so you can find out why these changes are happening.
