At some point we will all suffer from anxiety and other mood disorders to varying degrees. There is no use denying this or ignoring the fact, its a part of life. I am a big believer in the adage that knowledge is power and thankfully there is so much good information around now to help. For rural women the Internet plays a big part in keeping them in touch and giving them access to programs such as this one.
With 32% of women in Australia experiencing anxiety over their lifetime, Jean Hailes is proud to have partnered with MLC Community Foundation to develop this innovative evidence-based online resource aimed at preventing common mental health problems in women.
‘Anxiety: learn, think, do’ provides education strategies, self-assessment and a range of self-management tools for women. Visitors to the site can access information on the symptoms, causes and ways to manage anxiety across different life stages.
