Established in 2000 Beyond Blue has a range of support services, awareness programs and perform research for the millions of Australians affected by anxiety, depression and suicide.
Around 2 million people in Australia live with anxiety, 1 million are living with depression and on average 8 people take their lives every day.
In 2014 Beyond Blue in conjunction with a consortium called the Mentally Healthy Workplace Alliance created a campaign called Heads Up. This campaign was designed to encourage a more open dialog about mental health in the workplace.
Since its inception the Heads Up campaign have developed a large amount of support materials designed for:
- Employers & Business Leaders
- Small Businesses
We encourage business owners to take advantage of the resources available on the Heads Up website. By strategically creating workplaces that support healthy workspaces we can support not only your staff but improve your own mental health as well.
