After the success of last year Beyond Blue is proud to support the AFL Victoria Beyond Blue Round over the weekend of the 11-12 May 2019.

In 2017, AFL Victoria consulted with their clubs and identified that mental health was one of the leading priorities for both players and supporters. In partnership with Beyond Blue, AFL Victoria is working towards educating the football community on mental health and wellbeing and the support available.

By registering, we are asking clubs to pledge to raise over $100 for Beyond Blue throughout the season and run an activity within your football community to help start a conversation about mental health.

All clubs that register will automatically have a fundraising page set up for them to start their fundraising through their football community networks.

Fundraising activities could include organising a club luncheon or dinner, run a BBQ or bake day, donate your ground and/or carpark entry fees for the day, or conduct a raffle and auction.

Thank you for supporting Beyond Blue!

Beyond Blue

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.
