Perinatal

Perinatal

The experience of having a baby and becoming a parent can be exciting as well as very challenging. Perinatal mental health covers the period during pregnancy and the first year after birth. During this period, people may be vulnerable to mental health conditions like anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder or postpartum psychosis.

Children and families

Children experience rapid change and ongoing physical, emotional, and social development throughout childhood. There are many different things to adapt to as they grow up. While all children experience ups and downs, persistent signs of sadness, worry, or behavioural issues can be an indicator that they might need some support around their emotional wellbeing and mental health.

Adolescents

Adolescents and young adults

Adolescence and young adulthood is a time of rapid change in multiple aspects of self and life. The brain and body is still developing, and individuals transition to increasing independence and responsibility. Significant situational changes also occur, including first-time romantic relationships, changing schools, leaving school, and entering the workforce or higher education.

Adults

Nearly one in two Australians will experience a mental health condition in their lifetime.  Around one in five experience a mental health condition in any given year. The rate of mental health issues is significantly higher in some vulnerable populations, including indigenous Australians, defence force personnel transitioning from active duty, and people living with a disability.

Adults

Relationships

Disagreements and difficulties occur within many close relationships. However, relationship conflict can develop into unhealthy patterns which might set you on a course to relationship breakdown. This can impact on wellbeing, mental and physical health, relationships with others, and other areas of life.

Older persons

Our retirement years are for relaxing and enjoying time with friends and family. It can be distressing for this to be impacted by ailing physical health, loss, and age-related mental health conditions which impact on our memory, thinking, how we act socially, and on our emotional functioning.
