Where do the funds go?
When you host a beyondblue Bash, the donations you receive will help beyondblue to protect everyone’s mental health and improve the lives of individuals, families and communities affected by depression, anxiety and suicide.
Demand for and awareness of beyondblue’s work is growing. Every year, we have more visitors to our websites, more contacts to our Support Service, more orders for our resources, more requests to go out into communities, share stories at events and provide support.
The number of people contacting our Support Service has been going up at the rate of around 40% a year. In 2014/15, we responded to 150,000 people in need of practical advice and an expert, listening ear. Having mental health professionals instantly available to provide advice and support to people in need can and does save lives.
By hosting a beyondblue Bash, you will be helping more people to get the right support at the right time. Your support also means we can deliver more innovative services and programs, develop and distribute more new information, roll out new campaigns and fund more world-leading research. See some examples of how donations small and large can help the work of beyondblue.
