Introduction to Anxiety
There are different forms of Anxiety and they each affect us in different ways. Whether you or your loved ones suffer from generalised anxiety, social anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress, illness anxiety, or other forms of anxiety, there are ample support services available to help you cope with the challenges of everyday life.
Living with an Anxiety Disorder can be debilitating, but modern medicine and neuroscience have identified many methods and support techniques that can make this condition easier to live with. Our Anxiety Support Specialists are trained to understand how anxiety affects your life, develop a personalised plan, and help you see it through to meet your needs for outstanding Anxiety Support.
Throughout human evolution, we developed the crucial “fight or flight” response that was an essential protective mechanism when we were primal hunter-gatherers. When we encountered danger, our bodies would enter a state of hyper alertness. A boost of adrenaline increases the heart rate and increases our blood flow so we focus our energies on fighting for our lives or running from danger. Our experience of anxiety today is directly linked to this primal response, so you can imagine how it felt to face a bear or a pack of wolves when our ancestors lived in caves! As we evolved, that fight or flight mode has persisted and is frequently activated in inopportune everyday situations when stress and anxiety build up. This is anxiety as we now know it.
Anxiety affects people to varying degrees and everyone has experienced some form of anxiety at moments throughout their lives. Anxiety may be triggered by certain activities, such as an exam or a job interview, and it is completely normal to experience these feelings. While some anxiety is a normal part of being human, there is a level at which it simply becomes too much to handle.
Often, the thoughts and feelings associated with anxiety can be used positively to motivate us into action. However, some people experience anxiety on a more substantial level which severely impacts their quality of life, and it can become difficult to manage. When you experience anxiety on a regular basis, feeling anxious more often than not, even with no specific triggers, can significantly affect your daily life.

Is Anxiety Covered by the NDIS?
If you suffer from a long term disability resulting from a mental health condition, also known as a psychosocial disability or PSD, it is covered under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), and you may be eligible for funding to benefit from our support services.
It is estimated that 3 million people in Australia suffer with mild to moderate mental health issues and around 700,000 people have severe and persistent mental health illnesses that demonstrate complex needs and thus require support due to their disability.
Psychosocial disabilities can be crippling if not addressed properly. At Maple Community Services, we can walk you through the assessment process to see if you qualify for NDIS anxiety benefits. If you or your loved one meets the criteria, we can facilitate the process and have the full capacity to provide any support services you need.
To become an NDIS participant, you need to provide evidence of your mental health condition but a specific diagnosis is not required. NDIS support is contingent on how the condition impacts you and your daily activities, rather than the diagnosis itself, and that’s where our Anxiety Specialists can help you.
How Can The NDIS Help with Mental Health?
Australians living with PSD are among the most disadvantaged in our community. The current lack of awareness and support can significantly affect the lives of people living with these conditions. They may experience challenges with communication and social inclusion, finding employment and suitable housing, and maintaining their physical health.
The NDIS works with existing, community-based services such as Maple Community Services to support you in your everyday activities and live the life you want. Because PSD symptoms can present episodically or fluctuate in intensity, NDIS supports are designed to be flexible and accommodating, and increase and decrease depending on your individual needs.
