New PTU Kit Beyond Blue


Depression is a silent and debilitating illness affecting almost 50% of the world's population. Many do not seek treatment. Depression and anxiety can appear differently at different stages of the life cycle.

This kit is special to me in the sense it is something from which I suffer and battle with on a daily basis, and I have tried to incorporate some positive aspects into it which help bring me hope (ie. my dog, as featured).

The name I chose derives from an organisation here in Australia of the same name. It gives a promise of hope that there is life beyond depression. The colours are blue for the title and green for depression awareness.

Some interesting statistics:
* Depression and anxiety often have their onset in the teenage years.
* From puberty onward, women are twice as more likely to experience depression than men...
* Around one in six Australian men suffer from depression at any given time...
* Depression and anxiety may occur for the first time in later-life, especially in association with certain types of physical illness such as heart disease or stroke...
