As a member of blueVoices, the consumer reference group for beyondblue, and Founder of the Australian Travel Photography and Writing group, I'm coordinating the special event, Australians travelling beyond blue.
The event is in support of beyondblue’s Anxiety and Depression Awareness Month for October 2010. It is a participation event for individuals to take part in an activity to raise awareness of anxiety and depression, and help reduce stigma.
Now in its fourth year, beyondblue’s Anxiety and Depression Awareness Month has become an important mental health awareness event in Australia’s health calendar.
You can participate in Australians travelling beyond blue by following the link to where the event is being conducted in the forum of the Australian Travel Photography and Writing group.
