Can you name the most common mental health issue in Australia? New research by beyondblue shows most people are unable to identify the most common mental health issue in Australia. A survey reveals two in three Australians believe depression
is the most common mental health condition in the country. Only 13% correctly identified anxiety conditions as Australia’s most
prevalent mental health issue. “In any given year, more than two million Australians will experience anxiety, double the number who experience depression. One in four Australians will experience an anxiety condition at some stage in their life,” said beyondblue CEO Georgie Harman.
