About beyondblue Bash
Many of us have been affected by anxiety or depression, either personally or through family, friends or colleagues. Right now, over 1 million Australian adults have depression and 2 million are experiencing anxiety. On average, almost eight people take their lives every day in Australia.
Since 2000, beyondblue has been working to reduce the impact of anxiety, depression and suicide by supporting 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. Our vision is for all people in Australia to achieve their best possible mental health.
By hosting a beyondblue Bash, you are helping beyondblue make a real difference to the lives of individuals, families and communities affected by anxiety, depression and suicide.
Your support will help us meet the ever-increasing demand for our services and resources. Every year, more people contact the beyondblue Support Service, visit our website, order our resources and request beyondblue Speakers and Ambassadors to attend events to share their powerful stories of hope and recovery.
Here are some of the ways your funds could also assist the millions of people in Australia currently experiencing anxiety or depression:
