First Nations Peoples


Beyond Blue acknowledges the Land on which our head office is based has deep connections to peoples and cultures across the Eastern Kulin Nation. As such we acknowledge the Traditional Owners of this area, the Boonwurrung and the Wurundjeri Peoples, and pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging. As an organisation with national reach, we extend our respect to all Elders and First Nations Peoples across Australia.

Sometimes the signs and symptoms of depression and anxiety can be seen as 'just the way' you, a friend or family member are. This is not always the case. If you or someone you know are feeling broken and sad inside for more than two weeks, you may be experiencing depression. Depression can affect you, your family and your community.

Reducing the impact of depression and anxiety among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities is a priority for Beyond Blue. A range of research, information, education and support strategies have been developed and will continue to be developed in consultation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and organisations.
