Mental health in Australia
Mental health nurses care for those suffering mental illnesses, mental disease, and even stress or emotional difficulties, performing a vital role to the wider community. Mental health can often be overlooked and disregarded by the public and unidentified by sufferers and their loved ones, but it is no less serious as other physical injuries and medical illnesses. In fact, mental health is regarded as one of three pillars of overall health (the other two are physical and social health) – this is referred to as the Health Triangle.
Mental health statistics
Mindframe Media reports that:
- Every year, 1 in 5 Australians will experience a mental illness
- 14% of Australians will experience anxiety disorders
- 90% of those with a mental disorder have no history of violence
The Australian Psychological Society has recently reported that stress levels are growing among Australians and getting increasingly worse. 35% of Australians are reported to be showing significant levels of anxiety and 26% are reported to be showing moderate to very severe depression symptoms.
These reports and statistics highlight the evident need for services to treat mental illness and the important service mental health nurses provide.
Workplace stress soars
The same report also shows that an increasing number of Australians are complaining of workplace stress, with more people that ever being unsatisfied with their job.
Australians love their leisure time and it’s important to maintain a healthy work-life balance for the benefit of your mental health.
Nursing offers the great perk of flexible hours, and we have the support networks in place to assist you with that balance. Nursing can be tough at times, but we’re always alongside you.nursing
