Beyond Blue welcomes partnership with Tennis Australia

10 Oct 2018

Beyond Blue is proud to announce its new community partnership with Tennis Australia.

The aim of the partnership is to highlight the importance of taking care of your mental wellbeing on – and beyond – the court.

“This is a significant relationship for beyondblue,” Beyond Blue CEO Georgie Harman said.

“We value Tennis Australia’s support in spreading the word about the benefits of positive mental health and wellbeing,” Ms Harman said.

“By working together, we can create a culture that supports every Australian to achieve their best possible mental health.”

Tennis Australia is excited about the partnership.

“Our partnership with Beyond Blue is very important to us. The work they do is authentic and makes an enormous difference in our community. We look forward to working closely with them,” Tennis Australia CEO Craig Tiley said.

Beyond Blue and Tennis Australia are planning a series of exciting events and opportunities to share information and support the broader community as part of the partnership.

“Sport, and particularly tennis, can help smash stigma and transform attitudes throughout the community, cutting across age and gender, ethnicity and geography,” Ms Harman said.

“We want to create mentally healthy communities where mental health is spoken about openly, and where people feel comfortable approaching others without hesitation to talk about how they are faring.”

Tennis Australia officially announced the partnership at its Australian Open 2019 launch event in Melbourne.

The relationship is one of four community partnerships Beyond Blue holds with key organisations across the country.
