Anxiety is the most common mental health condition in Australia, affecting around one in every four people.
Nearly everyone has experienced anxiety. We can utilise some level of anxiety to reflect sensitivity to others, a regard for our own wellbeing and a motivating force driving us to achieve and perform to our best advantage.
