For years now, Beyond Blue has been doing as much work as possible to encourage people to learn about the symptoms and types of stress, anxiety and depression, which they could face or may already be experiencing.
In Australia, it's estimated that 45 per cent of people will experience a mental health condition in their lifetime.1
In any one year, around 1 million Australian adults have depression, and over 2 million have anxiety.2
Beyond Blue hopes to provide everyone, young and old, with information to recognise how depression, anxiety and suicide can affect people, and simple strategies to understand what to do if it happens to them, or someone close to them.
