3 million Australians are currently living with anxiety or depression. Beyondblue provides information and support to help everyone in Australia achieve their best possible mental health, whatever their age and wherever they live.
While beyondblue’s primary focus is on the needs of people affected by depression, anxiety and suicide, they also believe that a better understanding of what we mean by mental health and how to achieve it will help everyone in Australia reach their full potential. This will also contribute to the prevention of mental health conditions, and support people who have experienced these conditions to get as well as they can and lead full and contributing lives.
Having social connections, good personal relationships and being part of a community are vital to maintaining good mental health and contribute to people’s recovery, should they become unwell.
