Are you interested in securing a Beyond Blue speaker for your event?
The sharing of personal stories of anxiety and depression is a powerful means of raising awareness, reducing stigma and encouraging people to take action.
Beyond Blue is proud to offer the services of its Speakers Bureau free of charge. However, donations or fundraising efforts are warmly welcomed and help us to continue providing this service to ensure as many people as possible hear stories of hope, recovery and resilience right across Australia.
The majority of our Speakers are members of the community who volunteer their time to speak about their experience, to raise awareness of depression and anxiety and reduce stigma. While Beyond Blue does have some well-known Ambassadors, generally the demands of their schedules and commitments makes their availability limited.
We endeavour to meet all requests as closely as we can, however due to the large volume of requests received each week, we need a minimum of 30 days to process each request and search for an appropriate and available speaker.
