Dr Lee has been a solo family physician in the south side of Canberra for over 30 years. He has a keen interest in counselling. During this time he has encountered  many patients who have been troubled by “depression”, “anxiety”, or “stress”. The public, and even the medical fraternity,  have always referred to these mental health issues as if they are one and the same. Dr Lee begs to differ, and considers them to be distinctly different conditions requiring different treatment approaches. Most importantly, understanding and being able to differentiate these conditions, may reliably predict suicide risk.
