Did you know that 1 in 5 Australian adults had a mental health issue in the previous 12 months, with 50% of all lifetime mood and mental health problems, such as anxiety or depression, beginning before 14 years of age?  And 75% by the age of 25?

Plus there is the additional impact of absenteeism and presenteeism in the workplace, which costs billions of dollars in Australia each year in lost productivity.

So making sure we keep ourselves and our children on track mentally and physically is so important to all of us.

Avana Wellness provides nutritional therapy support, helping people get more out of their life physically and mentally using food and nutrients, unique to an individual’s needs.
