We are deeply saddened to learn of the death of Beyond Blue Ambassador and Darwin media personality, Mr Pete Davies.
As an Ambassador, Pete worked tirelessly to promote Beyond Blue’s work, raise awareness of depression and anxiety, and to reduce the stigma so often associated with mental illness.
We extend our condolences to Pete’s family, friends and fans – and acknowledge that his passionate advocacy work helped many people with mental health problems, on whose behalf he spoke.
Besides campaigning for a better deal for people affected by depression and anxiety, Pete was an award-winning journalist, radio presenter and popular Darwin personality.
Pete announced earlier this year that he had been diagnosed with cancer, but still celebrated life.
Pete passed away on September 7, 2015.
He will be remembered for his efforts to remain positive and saying: “Don’t dwell on the negatives, always make a big deal about the positives, and never be afraid to tell yourself you are doing a good job. Surround yourself with good people.”
