Anxiety

Everyone feels anxious at times, but too much anxiety can get in the way of daily life. Anxiety can become a problem when it doesn't go away, gets worse or makes it hard for you to do the things you want to do.

Body Image & Eating

Body image and eating concerns have to do with eating behaviours and how you view our body. When people change eating and exercise habits to change the way they look or to feel better about themselves, it can be a sign there is a problem.

Low Mood & Depression

Everyone feels sad or low from time to time, but a long lasting low mood could be a sign of depression. These feelings can become a problem if they don't go away, get worse or get in the way of daily life.

Questioning Reality

People with psychosis (si ko sis) have unusual thoughts, behaviours or beliefs. They may hear or see things that others don’t. These experiences can be very upsetting and disrupt a person’s life.
