The beyondblue National Roadshow

In February 2014, beyondblue embarked on a journey across Australia to encourage and support people everywhere to 'Take 1 step' for better mental health. Over 15 months the big blue bus travelled 53,000km, stopping in 360 rural towns, regional centres, capital cities and suburban neighbourhoods. Along the way, the National Roadshow team attended 528 community events and started conversations about mental health with 100,000 people. Find out more.

    Thank you, Australia
    Thank you, Australia. What a journey. Over the past 15 months, we’ve travelled the length and breadth of this country. Clocking up 53,000km as we roamed through remote and rural townships, regional centres and capital cities – meeting as many people as possible and covering as much ground as our 10-tonne, 35-year-old school bus would allow in 460 days!

    Reducing stigma, increasing wisdom
    The Roadshow is a revelation. I’ve had conversations I will never forget. At a Men’s Shed I hear about types of stigma that have disappeared in two generations and I’m hopeful we will all work successfully to banish more in our lifetime.

    Steps to wellbeing hidden in the everyday
    2015 is the year for prioritising good mental health. Since we hit the road again in early January, we’ve been asking people to think about what keeps them well and encouraging them to make a mental health pledge – a personal commitment to help them achieve their best mental health.
