As you can see, the stats are very considering. Anxiety and depression in Australia is becoming a huge problem. What can we do to make a change?

Perhaps a much better option is to find the causes of these horrible illnesses.

I have settled in Australia for now 3 years, And have noticed the lifestyle here is very different to where i used to live in Europe. Social life is very limited due to long hours of work. People are too busy focusing how to pay off debts and try to save money to earn a living, than rather hang-out together and not worry much about how they can survive through high expensive bills and debt. Anxiety and depression in Australia takes time consuming to get rid off western style of living. Lets take an example of anxiety problem of FIFO workers. These people are amazing hard workers dedicating to be out in the field for weeks even months. Spending long hours in the desert to feed their families and save some money to have a better future. They have earned their respect, but what is the solution for their condition? No one talks about depression of these workers. Instead of gambling and attending to dirty pubs, find out what else could they do to kill their precious free time while stuck up there in the mines?
