CHECK IN ON A SISTER!
Women are notorious for putting others needs before their own. Kelly Saidey and Lisa Willows from Lifeline Mid Coast believe that when it comes to mental health, it is important to prioritise your own needs and speak up when you need support. Around one in six women in Australia experience depression and one in three women will experience anxiety in their lifetimes.
“Good mental health is essential to the overall good health of women. Unfortunately, women experience some mental health issues at higher rates than men, these include post-traumatic stress disorder and eating disorders” says Lifeline’s Suicide Prevention Manager, Kelly Saidey.
