As ongoing COVID-19 restrictions leave many families feeling cooped up and stressed, people caring for someone with symptoms of depression or anxiety need support more than ever. Everymind and the University of Newcastle are responding with the trial of a new online program aiming to provide better care for carers.
As part of a national trial, Everymind is seeking people who support someone experiencing symptoms of depression or anxiety to participate and share their feedback for our new Minds Together online program.
Everymind has welcomed the $2.3 billion commitment to mental health and suicide prevention in the 2021/22 Federal Budget, with its emphasis on increasing supports where people live, work and learn, and a strong boost to suicide prevention.
Everymind is currently developing an online program and tailored resources to support families and friends impacted by a suicide attempt.
This program's development is funded by an Innovation Research Grant from the Suicide Prevention Research Fund, managed by Suicide Prevention Australia. The Innovation Research Grants support world-class Australian research into suicide prevention and the translation of knowledge into effective programs for individuals, families and communities.
