Get involved in beyondblue Anxiety and Depression Awareness (ADA) Month, October 2010

beyondblue Anxiety and Depression Awareness Month provides an opportunity for workplaces, community groups and individuals to take part in activities to raise awareness of anxiety and depression, and help reduce the associated stigma.

How you can be involved

At home:
  • Wear a beyondblue wristband during October
  • Take a beyondblue carry bag with you when you are shopping
  • Put a beyondblue magnet on the fridge
  • Encourage your family and friends to keep active – organise a group walk, bike ride or game in the park
At work or in the community:
  • Become a workplace or community group organiser for beyondblue Anxiety and Depression Awareness Month. Free Organiser Kits can be ordered online
  • Organise a blue-themed day or event and screen the beyondblue DVD Stories of Hope and Recovery
  • Display beyondblue awareness posters on your staff noticeboard, in your local community centre or club, or other community group space
  • Order beyondblue Awareness Kits for your colleagues, club mates or community group members
  • Use a beyondblue mouse mat throughout the year – it’s a great way to remind people that it is OK to talk about anxiety and depression every day
