    Not alone: how sharing mental health stories is actually helpful

    Not alone: how sharing mental health stories is actually helpful

    The statistics are stark: one in six Australians is currently experiencing depression, anxiety or both. Every day in Australia, approximately seven men die by suicide. With only half of those suffering from mental health conditions seeking help from a professional, what can be done to support the other half suffering in silence? Beyond Blue has released a podcast series titled 'Not Alone', in which a variety of Australians tell their mental health stories. The aim is to show that, despite how you may feel, you're not alone and sharing your story may encourage someone else to open up.
    In this special edition of News Fix, 'Not Alone' Marc Fennell tells us why he got on board to help people tell their stories, Brad McEwan opens up about how his family was affected by suicide, and Dr. Grant Blashki provides advice on mental health treatments.
    This podcast contains real stories of mental health conditions and suicide. If you or someone you know needs help or support, contact your GP, Beyond Blue or Lifeline on 13 11 14.

Interesting and insightful

Fantastic podcast! Easy to listen to format jam packed full of information. I love the ‘behind the headlines’ theme. Great for anyone wanting to grasp a deeper understanding of the world’s biggest news stories. Syan’s Julian Assange ep. has been my favorite so far.

Great new format, just what news needs

News Fix is a great bite sized format. I’ll rarely switch on a tv at 6pm to watch the news, but I still want to hear what’s important. News Fix is exactly what I needed. Real news in a lightweight format that I can access throughout my day. I’m enjoying hearing the journalists inside story too — more personality around how the story unfolds, rather than just the facts of what’s happened. Subscribed!
