Are you interested in speaking publicly about your experience with anxiety and/or depression (personally or through caring for others) to help reduce stigma and raise awareness of mental health issues?
If you are, this opportunity could be for you. The Beyond Blue Speakers Bureau are currently recruiting for volunteer Speakers to join the team in New South Wales.
The Beyond Blue Speakers team is making sure they grow the volunteer speakers bureau to support as many communities as possible. Therefore, in this recruitment, they are asking for applications from members living in NSW who are over 65 or living in regional to remote areas.
People affected by anxiety or depression who meet at least one of following criteria are eligible to apply:
- People living in rural and remote areas of NSW
- Australians 65 years or older living in NSW
Is being a Beyond Blue Speaker right for you?
It can be a big step to talk publicly about your mental health.
Some people find publicly sharing their personal experience, and responding to sensitive audience questions, can be confronting or stressful.
If you're interested in becoming a Beyond Blue Speaker we encourage you to reflect on your own wellbeing and whether this type of activity is right for you at this time.
Recruiting speakers is an ongoing process so you'll be able to apply again if now isn't the right time for you.
This activity has now closed. For more information on becoming a volunteer Speaker please contact the Speakers Bureau on 03 9810 6100 or via email
