Uniting AgeWell is holding a FREE community information session to help you understand anxiety, depression grief and loss.
Managing anxiety and depression
Depression is more than a low mood – it’s a serious condition that can affect physical and mental health. Anxiety happens when anxious feelings don’t go away, making it hard to cope with daily life.
Mental health is about wellness rather than illness. Having social connections, good personal relationships and being part of a community are vital to maintaining good mental health.
Grief and Loss
Grief is a natural response to loss. It can be the loss of a loved one, relationship, pet, or way of life, including children leaving home, adapting to living alone or moving into residential aged care.
Everyone experiences grief differently and it is something that takes time to work through. Understanding the process and having the support and ability to talk about your loss is important.
Learn how to access support groups, professional help, look after yourself or help a person who is experiencing grief and loss at this session led by Uniting AgeWell chaplains and Uniting AgeWell Palliative Care Specialist Kerry Whitlock.
