His new book Anxiety, aims to demystify this mental health issue, while sharing his own life-long experience of it. His book is described as “Expert advice from a neurotic shrink who’s lived with it all his life.”

Dr Cross knows a lot about anxiety. Many of his patients are sufferers, which is hardly surprising, given anxiety is the most common mental health condition in Australia. But Mark also knows about anxiety from another perspective, because he too has suffered from anxiety – he’s been anxious since he was four.

In this book, Dr Cross demystifies this mental illness in his trademark warm and friendly style. He looks at causes, treatments, both medical and natural, anxiety in the workplace and more, sharing his own experiences as well as stories from others.
