We are excited to announce that we are developing two new booklets on depression and anxiety relevant to young people; one for young people themselves and another for adults who care for young people.
The youth booklet will replace many of the existing Beyond Blue youth fact sheets, condensing the information into one handy resource covering a range of topics in relation to depression and anxiety. The adults’ booklet will be a brand new resource for Beyond Blue and will assist adults who are concerned about a young person or who care for a young person with depression and anxiety.
If you are a young person who has experienced depression and/or anxiety, or are an adult who cares for a young person with this experience, we invite you to inform the development of Beyond Blue's new resources.
Over the next few weeks there will be three opportunities to provide your input and you can participate in as many stages as you like:
- July - Stage 1 – Share your personal story to guide the resource content
- August - Stage 2 – Provide feedback on the tone and language of the resource
- September - Stage 3 – Provide feedback on the final draft
We look forward to hearing your perspectives and ensuring that these resources are useful to young people and the adults in their lives.
Thank you for your interest in this activity.
This stage of the consultation has now closed. There will be further opportunity to share your perspectives in stage 2 of the consultation, taking place in August.
We look forward to your future involvement in developing these resources.
