What women spend time worrying about: anxiety, bones and memory

The latest Jean Hailes National Magazine is available now, featuring a range of health issues relevant to Australian women at every life stage. In this issue we focus on understanding the difference between worry and anxiety; remembering that it’s never too late to maintain strong bones; and how to protect and improve our memory and brain function.

Helping women to start those ‘difficult’ conversations

While an estimated 1 in 5 women living in Australia experience sexual violence and 1 in 3 experience physical violence at some point in their lives, women from other cultures living in Australia experience violence at a higher rate. Ahead of International Women's Day on March 8, Jean Hailes for Women's Health acknowledges that women from all cultures may sometimes need support to deal with difficult situations, including the pressures, anxieties and stresses of raising a family in a new country.
