Right now, over 3 million Australians are living with depression or anxiety, or both.

And many, many more will have friends, family members and workmates that are struggling and having a tough time.

Today, like every day in Australia, seven people will die by suicide. That's twice the national road toll. 

These are shocking figures, and that's why Beyond Blue is here to support all of us, all of you, at any time no matter who you are, where you live, and what's going on in your life.

Everything we do here at Beyond Blue is about people, and we can't do the work that we do every day without people like you, and without a really strong community support base.

And more than ever we need to continue to grow that community of support because every day the numbers of people that are picking up the phone and contacting our support line, or joining our online forums, or sending us emails saying 'I need help' is growing.

There are many ways that you can help Beyond Blue.

You can become a volunteer. You can help us out at events. You can also fundraise for us, and there are many ways to do that and really can decide what you want to do. You can join a fun run, you can host a BIG BLUE BASH and go blue for the day for Beyond Blue. you can start a workplace giving program, you can hold any kind of event that you want and raise money for us.

And we promise that we will spend every single dollar that you raise for us as wisely and as well as we possibly can.

So thank you for your support.
