With over 2 million Australians suffering from anxiety each year, chances are you, or someone that is close to you have encountered this mental health condition.
In fact, many people don’t actually realise that they’re living with or have experienced an anxiety disorder at all. With feelings of worry, nervousness and fear, anxiety can be as elusive as it can be destructive.
And for many, anxiety is just the beginning. Long-term exposure to anxiety can significantly increase the risk of developing further chronic mental and physical health conditions - from depression, to Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), through to the increased risk of illness and infection.
