Soon after we started working with Prahran Football Club as a sponsor of their Community Sports Program, we found out about another project close to their hearts.
Members of the Prahran Football Club are acutely aware of the impact depression and mental illness can have on an individual, families and communities. Recent tragic events decided the Club on supporting beyondblue for this season, both as a tribute and as a way to provide help and support for people who are struggling.
Three million Australians are currently experiencing anxiety or depression. Every day, seven people take their own lives.
beyondblue works to reduce the impact of depression and anxiety in our community by providing information and resources – from helplines and research, to advice and education.
To help the Prahran Football Club fundraise for beyondblue, we have worked with them to create awareness ribbons that will be available to purchase at all Club events this season. The money raised from the sale of the awareness ribbons will help beyondblue in their lifesaving work.
Help and information about mental health is available for everyone at beyondblue.
