Big Blue Table

This October, Mental Health Month, we’re inviting you to fight the stigma of mental health one meal at a time. Host your guests, share a meal, start meaningful conversations and help raise funds for those facing anxiety, depression and suicide.

Getting together for a meal with friends, family and co-workers can do wonders for your mental health - and now, it can help people all across Australia! Nearly half of us will experience a mental health condition in our lifetime — so let’s ensure that no one struggles alone.

Receive a host kit

We’ll send you a free host kit with conversation starters, decorations and more to help you host the ultimate Big Blue Table. Your host guide will also give you all the information you need to set up and fundraise on the day, whilst the table talkers and conversation starters will ensure your mental health conversations are safe, interesting and stay on track.

Bring your friends, family or colleagues to the table! At your event, encourage your guests to talk about mental health by using the conversation starters in your host kit. Share your event on social media using #BigBlueTable 

Raise funds for Beyond Blue

All hosts pledge to fundraise for Beyond Blue’s 24/7 Support Service by asking for donations to your personalised fundraising page. Encourage those getting involved and attending your Big Blue Table to donate whatever they can.
