Policy and advocacy

At Beyond Blue, we are committed to promoting good mental health and creating change to protect everyone’s mental wellbeing, and to help people to recover if they become unwell.

We combine the experiences of people affected by anxiety, depression and suicide, with the evidence generated by researchers and evaluators, to influence public and political opinion and policy.
