Supercheap Auto will help increase awareness about mental health in a multi-year partnership with Beyond Blue that will also include vital fundraising support for Beyond Blue’s 24/7 Support Service.
Demand for mental health and wellbeing support is growing across Australia, especially since the coronavirus pandemic. Calls to Beyond Blue’s support services were 37 per cent higher in 2021, compared to the pre-pandemic year of 2019.
As part of today’s announcement, Supercheap Auto has made a $50,000 contribution to Beyond Blue’s Support Service.
Supercheap Auto will allow customers to donate to the Beyond Blue Support Service at selected stores as part of a national community program.
All funds raised by Supercheap Auto and customers will go towards the Beyond Blue Support Service, which is a free counselling, advice and referral service available to anyone in Australia via telephone 24/7, web chat and email.
