The Mental Health Association NSW (MHA) kicked off a 2014 campaign naming October's Mental Health Awareness theme "be YOUnique," which stresses the importance in being comfortable with who you are. The theme focuses on self-acceptance and pride. A lot of people have difficulty with this and it surfaces in anxiety issues. If you feel like you're struggling with anxiety, working with a therapist can help you get back in control of your mental health. Consider what it is that you are looking for in a therapist when you are making your decision. What are your goals and concerns? Another mental health initiative that Sydney and NSW is focusing on is reaching out to new parents by creating a site that connects them to one another. They've assembled a range of experts to provide information to young parents in order to help them get the resources they need to succeed. Having a family is stressful and if you don't have a support system in place, it becomes overwhelming. The stresses of a new child in the home can affect marriages, sibling relationships, and your friendships. Uncontrollable anger and depression are not a normal part of raising a family. These problems become exacerbated when:
- the other parent doesn't share fairly in the responsibilities.
- you're sleep deprived.
- your expectations don't seem to meet the situation's reality.
- there are medical concerns with you or the baby.
- finances are tight, and so many more reasons.
