Originally established as an English province, Adelaide is now Australia's fifth largest city and is well known for its Universities, fringe festival, gastronomy, art galleries and multi-culturism. A growing ethnically diverse, ageing and student population means that many people at some point will suffer from mental health conditions. As with other major cities in Australia, people can experience stress, depression, anxiety, alcholism, sex addiction, drug abuse and other issues that may affect their day to day living.
Adelaide has a great network of psychologists, counsellors and therapists that can help residents address their issues through one on one sessions. Nowadays, there are a variety of holistic therapies designed to effectively diagnose and treat mental health issues. A trained mental health practitioner will be able to easily asses which type of therapy is right for the individual.
