Everyone feels worried or stressed from time to time. Usually, those feelings fade when a stressful situation has passed. However, some people experience overwhelming feelings of worry, for no particular reason, that can make it difficult to cope with daily life. This is called anxiety.
Anxiety is the most common mental health condition in Australia, affecting around one in every four people.
There are many effective treatment strategies that can help you manage anxiety. The type of treatment will depend on the type of anxiety you are experiencing. Treatment can range from psychiatric interventions and medication to psychological therapies, support groups and lifestyle changes.
We offer an anxiety group day program at the Ramsay Clinic Orange.
Day Programs are structured, therapeutic group sessions – think of it as ‘group therapy’. We have a diverse range of day programs on offer, each tailored to address the specific needs of the people we care for.
Usually run once a week, over a period of weeks, you’ll work with our expert therapists on building life skills, managing symptoms and preventing relapse.
