Most people in Australia have some experience with anxiety and depression, whether it is personal or via family, friends or work colleagues. In fact, 1 in 5 women in Australia will experience depression and 1 in 3 will have anxiety during their lifetime. For men, 1 in 8 will experience depression and 1 in 5 men will experience anxiety. The good news is that, just like physical illnesses, depression and anxiety can be treated. The sooner a person seeks help, the sooner he or she can recover. beyondblue’s work is aimed at achieving an Australian community that understands depression and anxiety, empowering every person, at any life-stage, to seek help. beyondblue is an independent, not-for-profit organisation working to increase awareness and understanding of depression, anxiety and suicide prevention in Australia and reduce associated stigma. We work across a range of settings and bring together expertise in order to provide information and programs to support those affected by depression and anxiety, and improve the mental health of every person in Australia. Learn more about anxiety and depression at www.beyondblue.org.au, or talk it through with our support service - phone 1300 22 4636 (local call cost from a landline), or email or chat to us online at www.beyondblue.org.au/getsupport

The National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) is Australia’s leading charity raising and granting funds for breast cancer research. We are proud of the fact that we raise and grant funds exclusively for research, because we believe research is the most effective way to end breast cancer. We fund research right across the spectrum – from understanding the fundamental basis of the disease to psychosocial research aimed at improving the quality of life for survivors. Since 1994, $97 million has been awarded to fund over 340 Australian-based research projects to improve the health and wellbeing of those affected by breast cancer. In that time, because of research, the percentage of women losing their battle with breast cancer has been halved. Our aspirational goal is to achieve zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030. With 37 Australians diagnosed each day and seven losing their battle, there is still much to do.
