Well done to Hopkins for raising $444.55 for beyondblue. In Australia, it's estimated that 45 per cent of people will experience a mental health condition in their lifetime. In any one year, around 1 million Australian adults have depression, and over 2 million have anxiety. Beyondblue hopes to provide everyone, young and old, with information to recognise how depression, anxiety and suicide can affect people, and simple strategies to understand what to do if it happens to them, or someone close to them. The money raised by Hopkins will assist beyondblue in providing their valuable support.
