1) Create your message
First, think about what you’re going to say. If you feel comfortable, share a part of your personal experience with mental health to explain why doing the update is important to you. We suggest writing your message down before you record. And make sure you include this line:
“I want you to know, Beyond Blue is always available if I am not. Just search: Beyond Blue always available”
Or, if you don’t feel comfortable creating your own message, just follow this script:
Hi it’s <your name>.
I’ve given my voicemail to Beyond Blue this festive season because I know how important it is to find support when you need it.
So I want you to know, Beyond Blue is always available if I am not.
Just search: Beyond Blue always available.
Or leave a message and let’s chat soon.
