Mental Illness is very common

One in five (20%) Australians aged 16-85 experience a mental illness in any year. The most common mental illnesses are depressive, anxiety and substance use disorder. These three types of mental illnesses often occur in combination.

Is Mental Illness Treatable?

Yes, mental illness can be treated. Many people who have mental illness can recover completely while others manage their illness very well. The most important step is to seek help. See your GP in the first instance.
