But you are not alone.
There is much that can be done and
legalsuper is working together with SANE Australia
to help ensure good advice is at hand if you need it.
Mental illness is real. Around 20% of adults are affected by some form of mental illness every year.
Anxiety disorders affect around 14% of the adult population every year and depression affects around 6% of the adult population every year. Some are also affected by substance abuse disorders, psychotic illnesses such as schizophrenia, personality disorders, and other conditions. Many people have more than one diagnosis.
Some people are so severely affected by mental illness that it affects their ability to participate fully in society. It can affect their home life, their relationships and their work.
Most people with mental illness recover well and are able to lead fulfilling lives in the community – when they receive appropriate ongoing treatment and support.
It is important to ask your doctor about any concerns you have.
legalsuper has teamed with SANE Australia to offer you guidance and assistance should you feel you need it.
