SUPPORT MENTAL HEALTH:
Around two million Australians live with anxiety, and around one million live with depression. Sadly, on average eight Australians take their lives every day.
Beyond Blue Support is available for all Australians to speak to a trained counselor at any time. This service is experiencing increased demand during the COVID-19 pandemic as more people reach out due to the effects of social distancing, isolation and employment insecurity.
Our trained mental health professionals listen, provide advice and counseling, and point people in the right direction to receive the support they need.
SUPPORT A CHILD:
AUSTRALIAN CHILDHOOD FOUNDATION
Every night in Australia 46,000 children can’t sleep in their own beds because they are at risk of being abused or neglected.
In counselling, children are supported to understand the abuse was not their fault and they are worthy of love.
The Australian Childhood Foundation is a leading organisation, supporting children to recover from the trauma of abuse, neglect and family violence.
The Foundation provides specialist support to children, to help them heal and feel safe, while educating and empowering communities to safeguard children from abuse.
PROTECT A WOMAN:
WOMEN'S COMMUNITY SHELTERS
More than 50% of women seeking shelter are turned away every night. Across Australia, this equates to over 50,000 women nightly.
Women unable to access shelters are left vulnerable, disconnected from community and support networks.
Women’s Community Shelters are dedicated to providing women and children with a safe place to stay.
