Why your donation is so important?
2021 is a new year, and our world is a different place. We’re still trying to find a ‘new normal’ and we know that the anxiety of uncertainty is having a real, serious impact on a lot of Queenslanders.
Poor mental health is on the rise in this country. Young people aged 18 – 34 are experiencing high levels of COVID-19 related psychological distress. Contacts to crisis support services have increased up to 21% in the last year, with Lifeline, Kids Help Line and Beyond Blue reporting up to 80,000 people reaching out for help. Overnight loss of employment and social interaction took a huge toll on Australians last year with stress, confusion and anger affecting our daily lives. And while the pandemic will not last forever, the World Health Organisation (WHO) warns that this worldwide event may contribute to long-term mental ill health, including depression and anxiety.
The road to recovery from this pandemic is long, and supporting each other is a vital part of the journey.
That’s why, in 2021, WMQ is shining a spotlight on our mental health services, and the work and mission of those services to reach out to those who are struggling and show them that they are not alone, that they matter, and that even in this darkness, they can find light.
The world is different, but we are still a community.
Remembering Mates - how your donation creates a legacy
Hear their story
Bundaberg man Marcus Roberts was 23 when he took his own life while battling with depression. Now his family are honouring his memory through Marcus Mission.
Jonesy was larger than life and like family to so many. His friends and family feel his loss deeply, and they don’t want other people to miss their chance to help their loved ones who might be struggling.
A big thank you to our Supporters
