What is the beyondblue Connect toolkit? 

The beyondblue Connect toolkit helps you learn more about how you’re feeling and what you can do to improve your wellbeing. It can help if you’re feeling stressed, anxious, sad, irritable, tired, helpless or guilty – or maybe a combination of these things. It has been developed and tested by someone who has experienced these feelings themselves.  

The toolkit is made up of six parts and provides information and activities to improve your wellbeing and help you work towards achieving your goals.
