Mental Health

By Dr. Kelvin Adams. Updated 13th Oct 2014

In Australia 1 in 8 men will suffer from Depression and 1 in 5 with Anxiety at some stage in their lives.

Men are more likely to commit suicide than women, more likely to abuse drugs and alcohol, and be the perpetrators of domestic violence.

Unfortunately men are generally not as good at women at talking about their problems and leave them bottled up. This means that things like mental health problems can go unrecognised and untreated.

For help, talk to your Doctor at Northside Clinic.
