Anxiety and depression

SJG Burwood Anxiety and depression treatment programsAnxiety and depression

Depression and anxiety are common conditions.

Most people feel anxious or depressed at times. Losing a loved one, getting fired from a job, going through a divorce, and other difficult situations can lead a person to feel sad, lonely, scared, nervous, or anxious. These feelings are normal reactions, but some people experience these feelings daily or nearly daily for no apparent reason, making it difficult to carry on with normal, everyday functioning. These people may have an anxiety disorder, depression, or both.

Take back control of your life with our Anxiety and Depression Program

At St John of God Burwood Hospital our program will give you practical skills and strategies to use in your everyday life.

We treat Anxiety and Depression disorders such as Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, Social Anxiety and Social Phobia, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

A holistic approach to recovery is taken by engaging and supporting patients physical, mental and emotional well being. The group therapy program is based on the Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) model, which is one of the leading evidence-based treatments for anxiety and depression. 

Treatment is based on an inpatient program of group Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) which aims to reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression. Evidence-based group programs include learning how to challenge and change negative thoughts patterns, manage negative feelings, build self esteem and use relaxation exercise effectively.

A expert, experienced team of psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses and other allied health professionals work with patients daily both individually and in a group therapy setting.
