Beyond Blue Charity
The Digital Presence team believe in the power of connectedness and lives an ethos of kindness, integrity and trust. That’s why we are very proud to be associated with Beyond Blue, a registered charity dedicated to supporting and promoting mental health and wellbeing.
At least 2 million people in Australia are living with anxiety and around 1 million people are living with depression. On average, at least 8 people will die by suicide every day.
Beyond Blue is committed to helping people who are struggling with the ups and downs of mental health through support services, programs, research, advocacy and communication activities. The aim is to help people to understand that they are not alone, that their feelings can change, and to equip them with the skills and tools that will enable them to look after their mental health and wellbeing.
Furthermore, Beyond Blue offers support, advice, information, and access to discussion groups for everything from anxiety depression and suicide to pregnancy, early parenthood, grief, loss, drugs, alcohol and mental health.
The Chair of Beyond Blue, The Hon Julia Gillard AC believes that it’s important, now more than ever, to remain ‘connected, kind and compassionate.’ Beyond Blue is working towards breaking the stigma associated with mental health to encourage people to reach out for support when they feel they need it and to give individuals confidence in their own abilities to reach out to those around them who may be feeling alone, isolated and overwhelmed.
