3 million people in Australia are living with anxiety or depression. Every day, nearly eight people take their own lives.
beyondblue provides information and support to help every person in Australia achieve their best possible mental health, whatever their age and wherever they live.
Most people in Australia have some experience with anxiety and depression or related disorders, whether it is personal or via family, friends or work colleagues. beyondblue’s work is aimed at achieving an Australian community that understands anxiety and depression, empowering all people in Australia, at any life-stage, to seek support. beyondblue raises awareness, reduces stigma and ensures people have access to the information they need to support recovery, management and resilience.
beyondblue is a national, independent, not-for-profit organisation and a bipartisan initiative of the Australian, state and territory governments.
beyondblue works in partnership with health services, schools, workplaces, universities, media and community organisations, as well as people living with depression/anxiety and their carers, to bring together expertise and provide tools and resources.
