Beating anxiety & depression
Depression and anxiety can be caused by number of factors, such as loss of employment, possessions or loved ones. Abuse, trauma and low self-esteem can also be causes of depression, as well as divorce and separation.
Depression and anxiety can lead to insomnia, drug addiction criminal behaviour, mental disorders, chronic stress, weight loss (or weight gain), loss of employment and relationships, self harm and even suicide. As mentioned by Beyond Blue, depression is a high risk factor for suicide and, in Australia, there are approximately 2,200 suicides each year. 80 per cent are by men – with an average of 5 men taking their lives every single day. Suicide is the leading cause of death for men under the age of 44, significantly exceeding the national road toll.
The good news is that depression, anxiety and suicide can be preventable.
