Most people in Australia have been affected by anxiety and depression in some way, whether through personal experience or through family, friends or work colleagues. In any one year, around 1 million adults in Australia experience depression and over 2 million experience anxiety.

By joining or supporting Team beyondblue you're helping to improve the lives of millions of Australians affected by depression, anxiety and suicide.

In 2017, we’re aiming to raise as much as possible from Team beyondblue in events all around the world! These funds will help us to deliver our 24/7 phone and online Support Service (which provided advice, support and hope to more than 150,000 in 2016); innovate and deliver new services and programs; distribute free information resources and share powerful stories of hope and recovery across Australia; roll out evidence-based campaigns; fund world-leading research and advocate for all people in Australia affected by depression, anxiety and suicide.

All the best for your training! Don’t forget to #teambeyondblue on social media so we can see you in action!

Many of us have been affected by anxiety and depression, either personally or through family, friends or colleagues. Right now, over 1 million people in Australia experience depression and 2 million are experiencing anxiety. On average, 8 people take their lives every day in Australia.

beyondblue’s vision is for all people in Australia to achieve their best possible mental health.

The funds and awareness you raise will help us enormously as we work to support people to protect their mental health and to recover when they are unwell, reduce people’s experiences of stigma and discrimination, and improve people’s opportunities to get effective support and services at the right time.

With your support, we will continue to innovate and deliver new services and programs, distribute free information resources and share powerful stories of hope and recovery across Australia, fund world-leading research, roll out evidence-based campaigns and advocate for all people in Australia affected by anxiety, depression and suicide.

Your support will also help us keep up with demand for our 24/7 phone and online Support Service – which is staffed by mental health professionals and provides life-saving support to hundreds of people every day.
