With 32% of women in Australia experiencing anxiety over their lifetime, Jean Hailes is proud to have partnered with MLC Community Foundation to develop this innovative evidence-based online resource aimed at preventing common mental health problems in women.
‘Anxiety: learn, think, do’ provides education strategies, self-assessment and a range of self-management tools for women. Visitors to the site can access information on the symptoms, causes and ways to manage anxiety across different life stages.
The website is available at: http://anxiety.jeanhailes.org.au
Jean Hailes is immensely grateful to Senator the Honourable Michaelia Cash, Minister Assisting the Prime Minister for Women, who was present to launch this resource.
“There has been a significant gap identified in the availability of information for women diagnosed with low-level anxiety and anxiety disorders that is accessible, meaningful, and appropriate to their current life-stage. This is why an online resource such as ‘Anxiety: learn, think, do’ is essential. I am also pleased to see that primary prevention is a critical component of this online resource.” Minister Cash said.
