Mental illness in Australia is now at alarming levels, and is getting worse. Environmental influences such as COVID-19 and extreme weather events contribute to a sudden rise in mental health conditions such as anxiety and depression.
1 in 5 Australian adults had a chronic mental illness pre-COVID-19*, following the pandemic 4 in 5 Australians now report poor mental health and 34% of Australians said their mental health had declined in the pandemic.1
The consequences of exposure to such extreme or prolonged events can also be delayed, increasing the risk of posttraumatic stress disorder, or transmission to later generations.2,3
We urgently need a new treatment paradigm for mental illness which can address this growing public health crisis.
