Depressed Woman

Incontinence is a common condition that affects more than 4.8 million Australians, and almost 3 million Australians are living with depression or anxiety. 

The good news is that there are effective treatments both for incontinence and for anxiety and depression. With careful management, the symptoms of anxiety and depression can be treated along with those of incontinence so they do not interfere with life.
