Insurance Advisernet Foundation supports mental health support services.
Did you know right now 3 million Australians are living with depression or anxiety? It’s an alarming figure. But when you consider 45% of Australians will experience a mental health condition in their lifetime, it’s not so hard to believe. It also highlights the vital importance of the 24/7 support services provided by national not-for-profit organisation, beyondblue.
Founded in October 2000, beyondblue provides information and support to help Australians achieve their best possible mental health, whatever their age and wherever they live. Every day they help literally thousands of people, directly and indirectly, which of course requires human and financial resources. That’s why the Insurance Advisernet Foundation was so pleased to recently make a $5,000 donation to beyondblue CEO Georgie Harman and CFO Mark Burke. The funds will be directly used to aid beyondblue’s 24/7 support teams, including telephone, online chat and email-based programs.
