Who does it affect?

Depression and anxiety can affect any of us at any time. But at different points in our lives we can be at greater risk – when we're going through big changes such as becoming an adult, retiring, starting a family, or losing someone we love, for example.

Experiencing discrimination because of our sexuality, gender identity, ethnicity or religion can also cause psychological distress and make us much more vulnerable to depression and anxiety.

That’s why beyondblue tailors all its programs, information and resources to meet your specific needs, based on what you’re experiencing and your circumstances.
