Free Despression Counselling

Feelings of sadness, moodiness, and despair are normal parts of the human experience. They affect us all from time to time, and sometimes, we will need a helping hand to lift ourselves back up.

While depression is more than just a feeling of sadness, it is not abnormal, it is not wrong, and it is not something you experience alone. According to Beyond Blue, approximately 3 million Australians are living with depression or anxiety every day. These individuals experience sadness and low moods for weeks, months, or sometimes years at a time. For some people, the intensity of these feelings will be severe, while for others they may vary by the day.

Camcare can offer you support through our Counselling and Wellbeing Service. We also offer materials, information, referrals, advocacy, education, engagement, and community support to assist, uplift and empower you in any way we can.

Experiences of clinical depression or anxiety are more than just a bad day or a bad week; they are serious conditions that affect you physically and mentally. And while it may sometimes feel this way, you are not alone. Reach out to Camcare for support, assistance, and free counselling.

Depression Help: Offering You Strategies, Counselling, and Further Support

Nobody knows exactly what causes depression, and sometimes, you may not even be aware of the exact factors that led to you feeling this way. It’s important to remember that every individual’s experience of depression will be different, just as your road to recovery and ongoing wellness will be unique.

Camcare’s Case Managers can provide you with support and resources, as well as providing you with access to counselling. These services may help you to develop and improve your coping skills, as well as providing you with ongoing support to change your thought patterns and behaviours, and begin on the path of recovery.

Further resources and referrals can also be provided to aid you in your personal journey, including helping you to explore other depression treatments.

Postnatal Depression Counselling

Mothers experiencing a particularly difficult transition to parenting can be at risk of anxiety and Postnatal Depression (PND), a serious illness experienced by nearly one in seven, or 16%, of women giving birth in Australia. Camcare provides a targeted Parenting Support Outreach Program to provide support and assistance to new mothers and their families who are struggling with the impacts of parenthood. Our outreach worker will provide practical parenting support, including links to services such as sleep schools, psychologists and parenting groups.

Through Camcare, new mothers and their partners can access Postnatal Depression counselling, resources, and support from our community of volunteers, pro bono staff, and paid team members.

Access Mood Disorder Counselling through Camcare

Bipolar disorder is a mood disorder where you experience extreme mood fluctuations that can severely hamper your day-to-day life. Camcare can help you take the steps to manage your mood disorder by providing access to resources and other support, including counselling. We can help you develop a mental health care plan and take the next steps in managing your mood and taking control of your everyday life.
