Social Anxiety In Australia

Social Anxiety has affected 10.6% of Australians at some time in their life, with 12.8% of women and 8.4% of men, having had the disorder at some point. Therefore, it is evident that social phobia is more common in women than in men. The 2007 survey, The Mental Health of Australians found that 20% of social phobia sufferers rated their condition as causing severe or very severe interference in their lives, in the preceding 12 month period. 5.7% of women and 3.8% of men had a social anxiety disorder in the 12 months prior to the interview. Social Anxiety can affect one’s home life, social life, work, study and close relationships so accessing appropriate treatment is very important.
