Time required
10 to 15 minutes to complete

Activity Detail

We want to explore the role that culture has played in someone's mental health.

If your culture has significantly influenced your mental health (or the mental health of someone close to you), we’d love to hear from you. You may have found strength and connection through your cultural community or practices, or perhaps you have felt isolated due to beliefs and ideas about mental health within your cultural community

Beyond Blue will be sharing stories of people from different cultures and backgrounds throughout Australia, with a focus on the role that their culture played (or plays) in their mental health.

How will we use your story?

All responses to this activity will be shared with the Beyond Blue Content team. Your responses will guide the team to decide what they might include in an article on the Personal best pages of our website.

In some instances, they may:

  • Seek your permission to quote you in one of the articles
  • Contact you to find out if you would be interested in being interviewed for the article (either in person or over the phone)

What is Personal best?

Personal best is an information hub on the Beyond Blue website. Here, people can find engaging and evidence-based articles related to mental health. Article focus ranges from highlighting the stories and experiences of our community to sharing practical advice and providing expert insight.
