Anxiety

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.

How do we treat Anxiety at The Southport Private Hospital? 

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.   

Day Program
