Looking after you and your family’s mental health has never been as important as it is in these trying times. We chatted to Heather McLellan-Johnson, Director at Medical On Miami about the increase of the need from her community for mental health services.

“Many of us are needing some extra support and navigation due to effects of the Pandemic. For some of us it will be for the first time in our lives. So please reach out. We have many suitable options for you to connect with in a private and confidential environment, which can also include Telehealth appointments with some Psychologists.

We are not born with a set of instructions to navigate the changing stressors in our lives, especially in these trying times. Psychologists are just the people for you to seek help from in these times. They are trained in the art of truly listening and offer ideas and methods we could never dream about, particularly when we are in crisis.”

If you or a loved one have noticed a change in your mental well-being over the past few weeks, you are not alone and you don’t need to be ashamed in reaching out for help.

One quarter of Australians aged 16 to 85 years — 4.2 million people — will experience an anxiety condition during their lifetime. Women are more likely than men to experience depression and anxiety. These conditions can be serious but help is available.
