With over 10 years of continued operation and having supported close to 1,000 people over the years, this group offers a warm, comfortable environment for those people living with anxiety who are seeking to improve their quality of life.
Members are provided with hints and tips on how they can learn to manage their anxiety through the introduction of resources including cards, and fact sheets aimed at managing panic attacks and reducing anxiety.
The objectives of the group are to provide self help support, education and point people in directions that will help them. Members are encouraged to seek other avenues including professional help, drama and anger management sessions where they learn to express their feelings and better manage emotions.
The group provides an opportunity for people to meet, find out what is out there for them and to share information. The greatest achievement for the group, is seing people getting back into life and living happily without the fear of anxiety and panic.

Sometimes, no one understands what you are going through quite like someone else who is in the same boat.

The Australian Male Hormone Clinic is a practice that is dedicated to helping men who suffer from the debilitating symptoms that arise from having low testosterone (low T).

Three million Australians are currently experiencing anxiety or depression.1 Every day, nearly eight people take their own lives.2
Because this affects all of us, we’re equipping everyone in Australia with the knowledge and skills to protect their own mental health. We’re giving people the confidence to support those around them, and making anxiety, depression and suicide part of everyday conversations.
And as well as tackling stigma, prejudice and discrimination, we’re breaking down the barriers that prevent people from speaking up and reaching out.
We’re here for everyone in Australia – at work, home, school, university, online, and in communities across the country.
