Mental Wellbeing

Home » Our Services » Mental Wellbeing

Good mental health is more than just the absence of mental illness. It is a state of positive wellbeing where an individual is able to: 

  • Cope with the normal stresses of life
  • Work productively
  • Realise their potential
  • Contribute to the community
  • Feel good and function well

There are a wide range of conditions which affect mental wellbeing which vary in their severity. About 45% of Australians aged 16-85 will experience a common mental-health related condition such as depression, anxiety or a substance use disorder.


Northside Health acknowledges the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as Australia’s First People and Traditional Custodians. We value their cultures, identities, and continuing connection to country, waters, kin and community. We pay our respects to Elders past and present and are committed to making a positive contribution to the wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people, by providing services that are welcoming, safe, culturally appropriate and inclusive.

Northside Health is committed to embracing diversity and eliminating all forms of discrimination in the provision of health services and welcomes all people irrespective of ethnicity, lifestyle choice, faith, sexual orientation and gender identity.
