Pink mental illness is still a big problem, with the mentally ill struggling with their own mental health issues.
While the number of pink mental illness diagnoses in Australia has decreased over the last few years, the number remains very high, with more than 30,000 diagnosed.
The mental health charity PinkMentalHealth says more people than ever are living with mental illness and is urging all Australians to talk to a GP about their symptoms.
It is a very real, serious mental health issue that affects a huge number of Australians.””
Pink mental illness can be an ongoing problem, affecting up to a third of all people in Australia.”
It is a very real, serious mental health issue that affects a huge number of Australians.
“It is estimated that more than 15,000 Australians have pink mental illnesses, with mental health professionals and community mental health services aware of the issue.
More than 50 per cent of people with mental illnesses are male, and the majority of people diagnosed are male.
People with mental disorders often struggle with depression, anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder, as well as social isolation and stress.
Dr Scott Drennan, senior lecturer in psychiatry at Griffith University, said mental illness was a complex issue.”
While mental health may seem like a simple illness to some, there are so many different symptoms, the symptoms may vary depending on the illness, and what is going on in your life, that it can be challenging to know exactly what is contributing to it,” Dr Drenan said.”
There are so few good treatments, and it is still very difficult to predict what is happening, but it is becoming easier and easier to get information about the problem and how to get help.
He said it was a growing problem.””
It’s important for all of us to get support when we have a mental health problem, but if we don’t get help we can put ourselves and others in a situation where we’re going to need help to deal with the problems, so it’s important to get to the root of the problem,” Dr Rene said.
He said it was a growing problem.
“We’re seeing more and more cases of pink or pink mental disorder, but we know there are a lot of people out there who are struggling and we know that that’s a problem.
It’s about time people were aware of it, and had a conversation about how to help them,” Dr Hodge said.
