Do you live in Queensland and are you interested in speaking publicly about your experiences with depression or anxiety to help reduce stigma and raise awareness of mental health issues?
If so, you may be interested in joining beyondblue’s Speakers Bureau.
Our speakers assist beyondblue by sharing their story to groups in the community. We receive requests from all types of groups and organisations and match them with appropriate speakers to share their story. By doing so, our speakers help raise awareness and reduce stigma of depression and anxiety in communities throughout Australia.
Our beyondblue speakers share elements of their story that have a strong focus on hope and recovery. For this reason it is important to reflect on your current state of wellness before applying. We acknowledge that managing depression and anxiety isn't always an upward slope, however, the ability to effectivley manage stress and being able to commit to speaking events, are two important components of becoming a beyondblue speaker.
If this is something you think you might be interested in being part of, we’d love to hear from you!
