There are three million Australians living with depression or anxiety and approximately 2,500 suicides each year. With such alarming statistics, Beyond Blue is working towards the prevention of mental health conditions, and support people who have experienced these conditions to get as well as they can and lead full and contributing lives.
To support this important cause, the Power Tynan Charitable Trust recently presented Beyond Blue representative Bryan Spiller with a $1,500 cheque.
“While women are more likely to experience depression and anxiety, men are less likely to talk about it. This increases the risk of their depression or anxiety going unrecognised and untreated,” said Bryan. “Suicide is the leading cause of death for men under the age of 54, significantly exceeding the national road toll.”
