ASUS has today announced that it is now a Contributing Partner of Beyond Blue, helping all Australians to attain their best mental health possible in 2023 and beyond.
The partnership will see ASUS supporting the Beyond Blue Support Service that offers free and immediate counselling, advice and referrals via phone, webchat or email.
The collaboration between ASUS and Beyond Blue is reflective of the strong alignment of core values between both organisations, with a key focus on education of mental health to the community.
Emma Ou, Regional Head of ASUS ANZ – Systems Business Group, said that Beyond Blue’s commitment to community-driven outcomes to build a society that provides the right mental health support access at the right time was the inspiration for ASUS to become a Contributing Partner.
Ou continued, “At a time when mental well-being is more important than ever, we couldn’t be more proud to be associated with Beyond Blue as a contributing partner. As Australia’s most well-known mental health organisation, Beyond Blue has been providing support and services for over 20 years to the Australian community. We are pleased to support them for such a great cause and help people achieve their best possible mental health”.
Beyond Blue Acting CEO Patrice O’Brien thanked ASUS for its support for 2023.
“We are extremely grateful for this partnership with ASUS because it ensures that people across Australia can continue to access the Beyond Blue Support Service at any time. Our qualified counsellors and trained coaches are available to help people manage stress and get through life’s tougher moments. And they come from a diverse range of cultural and personal backgrounds, so they can better understand the people they support. No problem is too big or small, and we encourage people to seek support early because this can make it easier to bounce back and maintain good mental health”.
