Many of us have been affected by depression and anxiety, either personally or through family, friends or colleagues. Right now, over 1 million people in Australia are experiencing depression and 2 million are experiencing anxiety.
On average, 8 people take their lives every day in Australia.
Depression, anxiety and suicide affects all of us – so beyondblue is working to equip everyone in Australia with the knowledge and skills to protect our own mental health.
They’re giving people the confidence to support those around them, and making anxiety, depression and suicide part of everyday conversations. And as well as tackling stigma, prejudice and discrimination, beyondblue is breaking down the barriers that prevent people from speaking up and reaching out.
beyondblue is here for everyone in Australia – at work, home, school, university, online, and in communities across the country.
With your support, beyondblue can continue working to ensure everyone achieves their best possible mental health.
We are proud to have beyondblue as a charity partner and to help make a difference to mental health in Australia.
beyondblue will be cheering everyone on at Race 1 Elwood on Sunday 26 November and at Race 6 at St Kilda on Sunday 8 April. They will have the beyondblue van and a marquee set up, with BBQ, massages and information resources available.
