The Mornington Running Festival is supporting the fantastic work of Beyond Blue to help raise awareness of anxiety and depression through fundraising efforts. Most people have some experience with anxiety or depression, whether it be personally or through family, friends or work colleagues.  

Beyond Blue raises awareness, reduces stigma and ensures people have access to the information they need to support recovery, management and resilience. 

​Many of us have been affected by anxiety and depression, either personally or through family, friends or colleagues. Right now, over 1 million people in Australia experience depression and 2 million are experiencing anxiety. On average, 8 people take their lives every day in Australia. 

Beyond Blue’s vision is for all people in Australia to achieve their best possible mental health. 

The funds and awareness you raise will help us enormously as we work to support people to protect their mental health and to recover when they are unwell, reduce people’s experiences of stigma and discrimination, and improve people’s opportunities to get effective support and services at the right time. 

With your support, we will continue to innovate and deliver new services and programs, distribute free information resources and share powerful stories of hope and recovery across Australia, fund world-leading research, roll out evidence-based campaigns and advocate for all people in Australia affected by anxiety, depression and suicide. 

Your support will also help us keep up with demand for our 24/7 phone and online Support Service – which is staffed by mental health professionals and provides life-saving support to hundreds of people every day.
