Beyondblue is an independent, not-for-profit organisation working to increase awareness and understanding of anxiety and depression in Australia and to reduce the associated stigma. We promote good mental health. We create change to protect everyone’s mental health and improve the lives of individuals, families and communities affected by depression, anxiety and suicide.
Three million Australians are currently experiencing anxiety or depression. Every day, nearly eight people take their own lives.
Because this affects all of us, we’re equipping everyone in Australia with the knowledge and skills to protect their own mental health. We’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, we’re breaking down the barriers that prevent people from speaking up and reaching out.
We’re here for everyone in Australia – at work, home, school, university, online, and in communities across the country.
