Beyond blue in Brisbane

9 November 2015

In a recent Cultivate session, the Medland Metropolis Brisbane team were joined by a guest speaker from beyondblue who shared their personal story of anxiety, depression and recovery to increase awareness, reduce stigma, encourage people to talk about how they’re feeling and take action to get help.

3 million Australians are living with depression or anxiety and 1 in 5 employees are likely to be affected by a mental health condition.

Dedicated to nurturing each individual’s capacity to contribute to work, family, friends and community, Cultivate, one of the four streams of our Empower Programme, concentrates on personal practices and aspects of physical, emotional and psychological well-being. The objective of Cultivate has always been to establish an environment and culture that optimises the balance between work and personal needs for the entire team at Medland Metropolis, making it the perfect platform through which to support beyondblue and Mental Health Awareness Month.
